Our Old West Ranch Rodeo on July 3rd and 4th is a Tradition in SouthCentral New Mexico. Come watch real working cowboys play in competition of what they do best!
Introducing our Women's Ranch Rodeo, new for 2017. Come watch the cowgirls compete on all cowgirl teams on July 1st. Many of these ladies will join the men and youth competing later in the weekend in the Old West Ranch Rodeo!
The young cowboys and cowgirls show their skills in our longstanding youth competition. Many of the events are adapted to allow the really young ones to compete on July 2nd!
Traditional Rodeo each evening at 7 p.m.
The largest open rodeo weekend, based on total entries, in the United States. Our rodeo has all the traditional events, including bull riding and saddle bronc, team roping and tie-down roping, and women's barrel racing with two unique events, Ranch Bronc riding and Ladies Break-away Calf Roping.
Don't forget we also have mutton bustin' and a calf scramble for the kids.
Come meet Smokey Bear and laugh out-loud at the antics of Rodeo Clown Bob Weir!
If that is not enough, stay after the main performance each night to watch the "slack" when the rest of the cowboys compete to see who wins the purse.
Goat Roping each day time to be determined.
New this year, we will have a separate mini-arena set up on the grounds where anyone can enter with a partner to rope a goat in team roping fashion.
Quickly becoming a popular sport, all you need is a rope and a nod to join the rodeo excitement.
So, even if you left your horse at home , or you just have not bought that new roping horse you can join in the roping action!
Bring some cash, bring your goat rope, or borrow one, or we can probably sell you one, and enter our new event for one and all!
Drop us a line!
