Broncs and bulls event on Saturday at Huntington arena
Will and Tammy Payne wanted to sponsor a family friendly event that brings everyone out for a good time. The county is always in need of new events and things for families to do, so they want to encourage everyone to come out and enjoy this exciting event in its fourth year at the Huntington arena on Sept. 28.
It might be your last chance to get out and enjoy the fall weather before winter sets in.
The Broncs and Bulls all rough stock rodeo will be Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. Mark your calendars for some good times at the rodeo.
This year's event will include: bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, hide race, donkey roping and wild cow milking.
Back by popular demand is the third Annual Children's Rodeo.
This will include Junior barrels, stick horse barrel racing, chicken chase, cash calf, mutton bustin', Junior hide race, calf riding, and mini bull riding.
With the help of past sponsorship, we were able to make most children's events free to participants, with each child receiving something for their participation.
The children's rodeo was well received and gave local children, whom may otherwise never get the opportunity, a chance to have a rodeo experience.
Event organizers said, "We want to have low ticket prices so families can afford to come and enough added money to attract good quality riders to put on a great show.
"This year we will be including belt buckles for our rough stock event winners. It is important to us that this be a family event with good entertainment.
The kids rodeo action begins at 4-6 p.m. with a stick horse barrel race that is open to all children who would like to participate. Mutton bustin, junior barrels, calf riding, chicken chase, cash calf, and mini bull riding will take place. Call if you want to enter the mini-bulls.
The main event begins at 7 p.m. It might be chilly so bring a jacket and come catch the fun of the rough stock events.
If you'd like to try the hide race or the other events you can call Tammy at 749-1471 to register.
