2011 High School Rodeo Championships

We are so lucky to have a great horse facility here in Boulder City.  It is home to over 400 horses, about 50 steers, probably that many chickens, roosters, dogs and cats too.  Boulder City Horseman's Association includes a three nice arenas, several round pens and even a snack shop with great burgers.  It is also where the local High School Rodeo Team practices and has their annual State Championship Finals at the end of the year.

We have set up a small booth out there when we can and have met some great kids and their parents from all over the state.  We run into parents and grandparents who came into our store in Bishop because we were the closest good store to places like Tonapah and Fish Lake Valley.  It is very low key and just great fun to see all the kids trying to do their best.

We like to get all of our tack and horse related items out for people to see as we know their is no substitute for seeing a product in person. We find a lot of the regulars come by to see our tack and make purchases or drop off repair work.

Even though the weather is cool in the late Fall it is wonderful to sit in the sun and be a part of this great event.
