New this year we are introducing is Goat Roping!

Some of the events are individual like the Ultimate Steer Toss. Other events are Team events. No need to bring a team though because there will be lots of other teens looking to partner up for some Xtreme fun. Teams form right at the starting line so everyone ages 12 to 19 can get involved.

Event is run in the covered arena on Saturday, March 19th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Great prizes like buckles, gift cards and much more donated by our generous sponsor, Shoppers Supply. Prizes will be awarded at 4pm in the stands immediately following the event.

Event activities are from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, with prizes awarded at the end of the event.

General Information:

All participants must have a waiver completed and be wearing an official back number to participate in Xtreme Teen events.

Some Xtreme Teen activities may be run concurrently due to time constraints. Listen to the announcements at the event for the up-to-the-minute action reports in our covered arena. We will try to time events so that everyone can participate in every event they want to join the fun for.

Xtreme Teen Events:

Definitely a crowd favorite! This event is also called “chute doggin’”. In this event participants are timed on how long it takes them to lay a steer down on its side. Participants start in the official rodeo buckin’ chute with their steer, when the chute opens the participant has 30 seconds to try and get that steer down on its side with all 4 feet off the ground. Don’t worry, there will be a demonstration and plenty of coaches to help you understand what to do. Come on, you know you want to try it! Two champion buckles (boy & girl) will be awarded in this event in 2022, so girls you only compete against each other to win a buckle.

Goat Roping

New this year by popular request.  This is run like team roping only you are on foot and chasin’ a goat.  Just like team roping, the goat starts in the chute and gets a head start.  You and your partner work together to get a rope over the head and the heels of your goat.  No experience necessary so come out and give it a try!  Custom Roots N’ Boots buckles for the fastest team.  Other prizes like Shoppers Supply gift cards and hats through the 10th place team.  You won’t want to miss out on this fun.

Chicken Challenge

One of our funniest events to watch! All we can say is the event involves a team of two, a crazy chicken and a wheelbarrow. You have to come out and experience it for yourself! All ages 12 to 19 can participate together (hint….great event for one younger/ older partner or one big/ one small partner!)  Lots of great prizes donated by our sponsor Shoppers Supply.

Piggy Back Hustle

Barrel racing with a twist! One partner is the “horse” and one is the “rider”. Each team competes for piggyback style on our traditional barrel pattern. Fastest team wins the heat and a prize…winners of the heats get into the finals round to compete for the grand prizes. Event open to partners of all ages 12 to 19. Teams often form at the starting line so don’t worry if you arrive without a partner!  Custom Roots N’ Boots buckles to the fastest team and many other great prizes from Shoppers Supply for our heat winners.
