The Ranch Rodeo events are a great chance for contestants to win money and prizes while entertaining a the crowd at the Pendleton Round-Up Pavilion. The action opens with the Team Branding contest. This action-packed event always has surprises and thrills as teams of 4 cowboys/cowgirls try to brand four calves in a race against the clock.

 

Later in the evening those same teams compete in the Trailer Loading/Tie Down event. This popular timed event pits the same teams of 4 cowboys/cowgirls to tie down one steer and load another into a trailer (at the same time) again for the fastest time. This is a wild and woolly event and a crowd favorite. The team with the lowest combined time of team branding and this event will be the Ranch Rodeo Champions. 

 

The action moves to the Mixed Team Branding, where teams of cowboys, cowgirls and ranch kids compete to beat the clock and brand four calves. 

 

The Stock Dog Calf Roping Contest and the Select Gelding Team Branding Exhibition events add to the excitement of the evening. The Stock Dog Calf Roping event matches a stock dog against a steer as it works to put it over the line for the cowboy/cowgirl on horseback to rope in a fast time. Sale Horse Exhibitors then have a chance to show off their consigned sale horse in a team branding exhibition. These exciting events showcase the superior quality stock dogs and ranch geldings that are entered in the Cattle Barons sale on Saturday. 

 

Come and watch the action! It is guaranteed to be wild and western!
