Events for Kids

We love kids attending our rodeo, and have several activities to entertain kids and their families. The activities take place in the rodeo arena, and give the kids an opportunity to see what the arena looks like from the participant’s point of view.

Stick horse race:
There are two age groups for the stick horse race, 3 years old and under, and 4 to 6 years old. We provide stick horses, or you can bring your own if you would like! The winner in each age group receives a real cowboy belt buckle, provided by the Methow Valley Horsemen. All other participants will receive a ribbon.
