You will be sure to see Rodeo Clowns, Grand Entry presentations and lots of good old fashioned grit and gumption as young and old bring their best to CWWR performances. Ranch Bronc Riding continues to be one of our most popular year events so we will continue it every other week and for the FINALS with a buckle! Hide Race another of the favorites alternates with Ranch Broncs and is a buckle series as well. .
June 1st, July 6th (our 4th of July rodeo celebration) -- Josh Rogan
Josh will be entertaining us with his brand of singing and guitar playing that has been described as “dark bluesy rock might just as easily have hopped from the same rail that carried Elvis into Memphis, or drifted ashore in the same Baha tide that produced Chris Isaak.” Josh has been a most welcome fixture of the CWWR the last few seasons. You don't want to miss Josh singing the National Anthem and more.
July 13th, July 20th, July 27th, and August 3rd. -- Time to Ride
Alpine Animal Hospital “Time to Ride” There will be horseback rides for kids in a special pen, lessons on horse care, and the opportunity for questions and answers. Be sure and visit them and tell them how much you enjoy Time to Ride. If it proves popular they may offer more dates.
June 1st & 10th -- Tentative Reining Demonstration
Alpine Animal Hospital will be doing a reining demonstration.
June 29, July 13 and August 10 -- funny man/rodeo clown, Joe Carr
