The rodeo allows families and people to engage in fair-like activities to enjoy and make memories in a variety of different ways, and due to the popularity of the rodeo, it was very packed, making competition harder for our contestants, which means a whole lot more than they won.

Some more of our school’s students will be going and competing in Houston, such as Emily Burt, who placed 3rd.

Some of the fair activities students were able to enjoy before or after their competitions were multiple carnival activities, ring toss, and a small variety of rides, which was a great way to wrap up the rodeo season
