July 16 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo to Feature Blizzard and Boo and Tough Enough to Wear Pink

July 16, 2015 Specialty Act– Blizzard and Boo Returns & Tough Enough to Wear Pink Rodeo Raises Funds for Fight Against Breast Cancer

We are pleased to announce Blizzard and Boo will be appearing at the CWWR July 16th. Excerpt from — Who are “Blizzard and Boo?”, you ask. Well….. “Blizzard” is a 9 year old, registered Texas Longhorn that weighs in at 2000 pounds and “Boo” is 110 petite pounds (when you put rocks in her pockets) of PURE heart. Blizzards’ devotion and Boos’ smile are unrelenting, bringing joy and astonishment to all audiences. Blizzards abilities seem endless when he performs, both in and out of the arenas. Blizzard will load into X-large chutes for grander entry. The pair perform under saddle, bareback or with just a bull rope. Blizzards gentle nature and love of performing make him the perfect crowd pleasure. Blizzard will be greeting attendees and with time for petting, visiting and photos. Blizzard and Boo AWH!!! the audience with their pedestal mount, pole bending, superb reining, cone racing and agility maneuvers.

Are You Tough Enough To Wear Pink?

You too can join the western community in its efforts to raise research funds for the fight against cancer! The Calaway Young Cancer Center at Valley View Hospital will receive a portion of the rodeo proceeds.

Join us for a special  celebration of cancer survivors at our rodeo on  Thursday July 16th at 7:30pm.  It’s the western community’s way toward the cure. Come join us in remembering those we have lost to cancer and showing your support of those fighting the fight.
