Count on family fun at the Rodeo!
If you have never attended a Rodeo then you are in for a real treat. Rodeo is an event that was re-created a number of years ago to return to the roots of rodeo when the first event was established in 1882. The event, widely hailed as the first rodeo, was held in North Platte, Nebraska, and was produced by William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill). Buffalo Bill incorporated trick riding and a number of other entertaining additions to the rodeo.
In today’s fast paced environment it is rare that one can go to a sporting event of any kind and see and feel the camaraderie and the friendliness that we feel at Rodeo. So come on down to the Archuleta County Fair and watch cowboys and cowgirls compete in horse catching, calf branding, team penning, team doctoring and wild cow milking.
