Rodeo Adventures Every Saturday at Westgate River Ranch
Posted on July 27th, 2012 by Rebecca Thompson
Don’t miss the Saturday Night Rodeo at Westgate River Ranch! This occasion is guaranteed to be fun for the entire family. Adjacent to the River Ranch Saloon, this weekly event is held Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. in the 1,200-seat rodeo arena.
Among the contests are: trick-riding, bull-riding, barrel-racing, calf-roping, rodeo clowns and a red white and blue tribute to our Armed Forces. Not to mention, at the end of the evening, children are invited to participate in a real “calf scramble”. Admission price is $15.50 for adults and $8 for children. Bull riding is one of the featured events, and there’s tons of excitement as kids and adults both test their stamina atop the back of a bull.
Another thrilling event is trick riding. Different from traditional types of riding,trick riding showcases riders’ skills as they perform impressive tricks while positioned atop a galloping horse. If you’ve never seen a trick-riding demonstration in person, now is your chance.
Following the rodeo, kids will get the opportunity to sing, dance and compete in fun games while a D.J. entertains the crowd with classic party favorites.
Be sure to stop by the rodeo tomorrow and every Saturday for an evening of fun the whole family can enjoy!
