Capacity crowds, 8500 pounds of tri-tip and 550 cowboys are just a few of the highlights of the five-day event so far. The rodeo starts at 2 p.m. today.
Gates open two hours in advance for those looking forward to one of the best tri-tip sandwiches around!
Saturday’s performance saw some of the best go’s yet, for some of the best cowboys and cowgirls in the sport of rodeo.
Bronc Marriot (Woods Cross, UT) kicked off the rodeo with an 87-point ride on Choke Cherry, while his dad Bobby Marriot watched. Bobby is one of the rodeo’s pick-up men in the arena who helps the cowboys safely dismount from the bucking horses and bulls.
Breakaway roper Amanda Coleman posted a 3.8 second run in the dirt and Josie Conner was on her heels with a 4.1 second go.
The saddle bronc event was full of adrenaline with Australian cowboy Jake Finlay (Goondiwindi, AU) posting an 89.5-point ride on Lunatic From Hell while brothers Ryder Wright and Stetson Wright tied for the second highest score with each tagging an 87 point ride.
