A Pee Wee Rodeo, Horse Demonstration Team, and Country Concert are on the schedule for Pow Wow Days in Orangevale on May 19th.
The Rodeo will kick off at noon and will include four events: Stick Horse Racing, Bucket & Bales, Boot Run, and Dummy Roping. Events are $3 each to enter. Ages 2 to 9 are welcomed to participate. The age groups will be broken down into three categories to increase fairness and competitiveness: 2-4 years old, 5-7 years old, and 8-9 years old.
You may be wondering what each event consists of. In Stick Horse Racing, the object is for the children to gallop around the barrel on their stick ponies, return to the starting line. The first one to return to the finish line is the winner. The contest Bucket & Bales requires each child to pick up bales (craft size hay bales) and place them in buckets. The first one to finish is the winner! Be prepared for mayhem in Boot Run. The game starts with a pile of shoes and boots. The first one to make a pair of Boots andÂ return to start/finish wins! Â Finally, we haveÂ Dummy Roping. Â Here each contestant gets 90 seconds toÂ make as many rope attempts as possible. Legal headÂ captures will count. The one with the most legal head captures wins!
Prizes will include buckles, stick horses and boots and each participant will receive a ribbon. Â You can download and mail the entry and release form or bring it to the event day of. Â Registration for all events will close at 10:30 am.
