Calf Scramble

  • Cost: Complimentary

  • Requirements: Ages 5-12 and signed waiver by a parent or guardian

  • Description: 100 kids will enter the arena and chase down a group of friendly calves. The first five buckaroos to pull a ribbon from the calves’ tails win a prize!

  • Cost: $25

  • Requirements: Ages 3 or older, weighing less than 50lbs and signed waiver by a parent or guardian

Burro Racing

  • Requirements: 18 or older and a signed waiver

  • Description: 3 teams consisting of 3 people test their abilities by pushing, pulling & riding their burro from one end of the arena and back!

BULLoon Stampede - New Activity to 2018!

  • Cost: Complimentary

  • Requirements: Ages 13-17 and a signed waiver by a parent or guardian

  • Description: You and your friends will be set loose in a balloon obstacle course in the center of the Beaver Creek Rodeo Arena. Each contestant will be fitted with a helmet and horns and, when the whistle blows, use their horns to pop as many balloons as possible before the clock runs out! Whoever pops the most balloons wins a prize.

Ranch Saddle Bronc Riding
  • Ranch Saddle is an iconic Rodeo staple - 8 seconds of vicious riding, unless, of course, the bronc wins! The rider can be disqualified for many infractions including: pulling leather (holding onto the saddle), changing hands on the rein, wrapping the rein around his hand or losing a stirrup. The horse must be saddled exactly as it would be for ranch work. No rodeo saddles here!

Bareback Bronc Riding

  • To win this event, the cowboy must hang on to the bucking bronco with just one hand and endure 8 long seconds of whiplash, whirling, and twirling. Nothing stands between the horse and the cowboy – no reins, no stirrups, not even a saddle!

Team Roping

  • Two cowboys, a header and a heeler work together to catch a steer as fast as possible, earning points for their skill and speed.

Barrel Racing

  • Elegant riding and precise timing are the keys to winning this intense competition which consists of sprinting into the arena and tightly turning a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels.

Bull Riding

  • In this dangerous event, bull riders must overcome 2,000 lbs of angry animal angst for 8 exciting seconds. A loose rope and the cowboy’s one-handed steely grip are all that hold the rider to the beast.
