Collegiate Ranch Rodeo

It’s a battle of cowboy grit in true Ranch Rodeo style, as teams from Clarendon, Tarleton, Texas Tech and Texas A&M take it all out on the dirt. It will put teams of ranch horse and stock horse cowboys in direct competition with one another in events that working cowboys and ranch hands do every day. Special appearances by the Texas Tech Masked Rider and Texas A&M University Cadets make this a must-see event!
