Don’t miss your chance to support local High School Rodeo Association members on Saturday, May 12, and Sunday, May 13, at the Colorado State High School and Junior High Rodeo.
There is no gate charge to watch this event, which will take place at the Western Heritage Event Center Arena (U.S. 84 and Mill Creek Road) — Red Ryder Rodeo Arena.
The Basin High School Rodeo Club, which includes members from Pagosa Springs, Durango, Bayfield and Ignacio, will host the two-day event for students from across the state.
Saturday will begin with junior high rodeo at 9 a.m.; high school events will follow 30 minutes after the junior high rodeo ends, but not before 11:30 a.m. Sunday’s events will be in reverse order.
Concessions will be available, with proceeds to support the rodeo team.
The Basin High School Rodeo Club would like to thank the many businesses in the area for their support in making this event possible.
