SDRA Membership Rodeo
March 15-16 at the
Tri-State Horse Expo in Sioux Falls
On March 15-16, 2014, cowboys and cowgirls from across the region will shake the winter snow off their boots and compete for an early lead
in the 2014 SDRA standings. With the 2013 champions crowned just a few short months ago, the South Dakota Rodeo Association will kick off the
new season with its annual SDRA membership rodeo. This year the rodeo will head across the river to Sioux Falls, S.D., and be a part of the
2014 Tri-State Horse Expo to be held at the W.H. Lyons Fairgrounds.
With performances at 6 p.m. CST on Saturday night and 1 p.m. on Sunday, rodeo fans will have the opportunity to watch the excitement of all
12 SDRA rodeo events, including team penning and mixed team roping. Each event will feature past and present champions as well as up and coming athletes.
For those interested in seeing athletic talent of the four-legged type, you will not be disappointed. Lesmeister Mitchell Bucking Horses will be bringing some
of the top genetics in the bucking horse industry to challenge cowboys with each crack of the chute gate and will leave fans holding their breath with anticipation.
On the timed event side of the arena, cowboys and cowgirls will be riding some of the best horses in the region battling to help them secure a spot at the
SDRA finals in October in Rapid City, S.D.
The excitement will extend beyond the SDRA arena at the Tri-State Horse Expo.
Beginning on Thursday, March 13 and running through Sunday, March 16 spectators can take in events such as a colt starting clinic, barrel racing jackpot,
heading dummy roping, a ranch rodeo, and two-man sorting.
In addition, to the horse activities will be a trade show featuring local and regional crafts, equine supplies and more.
