The 13th Annual Tri-State Special Kids’ Rodeo
The 13th Annual Tri-State Special Kids’ Rodeo will be held on Saturday, August 31, 2013at 10 a.m.at the Fort Madison Rodeo Arena. The rodeo will be held rain or shine. Registration starts at 8:30.
The rodeo is for any child or adult who has a mental and/or physical disability. It is handicapped accessible.
Events: The contestants will be able to participate in supervised/assisted horse back riding, goat tying, ride in a wagon pulled by draft horses, and a small petting zoo. There are also the simulated events of bull riding, bronc riding, roping, and barrel racing. All of the participants, their families, and volunteers are served a free barbeque lunch.
All contestants are winners and receive a t-shirt and awards.
In 2012 we had 213 participants, so we are in great need of mentors to help us take participants to each event. We request mentors be in the 7th grade or older, as many of our participants are adults. Mentors are requested to arrive by 9:30, and there will be a short meeting to explain their job/duties.
This is a totally free event, and the public is invited to attend to watch and support the contestants.
