Exceptional Kids Rodeo

2017 - 1st Annual Exceptional Kids Rodeo

1 of 2

A child sits in the rodeo bleacher and watches as some of the best bulls riders and bucking horses that the rodeo world has to offer fill the arena... he dreams of being a cowboy... she dreams of racing around the barrels on that beautiful horse... Physical and mental disabilities should never stand in the way of those dreams....

In 2017, Lakeside Rodeo was pleased to announce the addition of an Exceptional Kids Rodeo on Sunday before the regularly scheduled PRCA Rodeo competition.

Under the guidance of Rodeo professional contestants, Rodeo Queens and local royalty and community volunteers, exceptional kids had a chance to meet cowboys and cowgirls, to learn about the sport of Rodeo and they experienced the thrill of being in the Rodeo arena.

Each child contestant was encouraged to rope dummy calves, dress up and then climb in and out of the bull fighter’s barrel, meet Kevin Higley the Rodeo clown, meet Buffalo Chip and his assistant clowns, study with bull fighters, cowboys, and stock handlers.

The East County Herald, the only photojournalist publication in San Diego, documented the 2017 event.... click here to see the wonderful photos.

Special thanks to sponsors and volunteers is extended by Event Chairman, Sydney Morehouse!

Every 2017 Exceptional Rodeo Contestant was a Winner!

Each contestant received a cowboy hat, T-shirt, bandana, a autographed poster, back number and a picture.
