Order of Events at the Statesboro Rodeo

Bareback Bronc Riding

In Bareback Bronc Riding, a competitor is riding on the back of a bareback horse (bronc), trying to stay on for 8 seconds. The horse is trying to throw off the rider by bucking and running around the arena.

Saddle Bronc Riding

In Saddle Bronc Riding, a competitor is riding on the back of a saddled horse (bronc), trying to stay on for 8 seconds. The horse is trying to throw off the rider by bucking and running around the arena.

Calf Roping

In Calf Roping, the rider attempts to rope a calf released from a chute from horseback. The rider throws a loop of rope (lariat) around its neck, dismounts, runs to the calf and ties three of its legs together. The objective is to do this in the shortest time possible.

Calf Scramble

The Calf Scramble is a local event. In the Calf Scramble, children enter into the arena along with a calf with a ribbon attached to its tail. The child who removes the ribbon from the calf receives a prize from a local business sponsor. Children are divided into two age categories. Pre-registration is required before the start of the Rodeo and can be found near the arena. 

Steer Wrestling

Steer Wrestlers start out on horseback chasing a steer. When they are close enough, they drop from horseback onto the steer and wrestle it to the ground by its horns. The Wrestler with the shortest time wins the event.

Specialty Act

Since the inception of the Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo, we have had various Specialty acts such as: trick riding (including a horse jumping through a flaming hoop!), and trick roping. Each year's event varies, promising that you won't see the same thing year after year!

Steer Dressing

Steer dressing is a Local Fun Event in which local teams attempt to dress a steer. The teams are given clothing items-- shirt, pants and socks (sometimes even a tie!) and they have to catch a steer and dress it. The team that gets their steer dressed first wins a prize from the event sponsor.

INTERMISSION

Enjoy BBQ from the Grub Shack, hamburgers from L&D, corndogs from the Backyard Grill or a snow cone from Tastee Ice! You can ride a camel or a pony or simply visit with local businesses in our vendor area or just stretch your legs and get ready for more action in the arena!  

Barrel Racing

In Barrel Racing a horse and rider take a cloverleaf shaped route around barrels preset at certain distances in the attempt to get the fastest time. Time penalties are applied when a horse turns over a barrel. 

Specialty Act

Since the inception of the Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo, we have had various Specialty acts such as: trick riding (including a horse jumping through a flaming hoop!), and trick roping. Each year's event varies, promising that you won't see the same thing year after year!

Team Roping

Team roping involves a team of two competitors on horseback and one steer. The header ropes the front of the steer (usually around the horns), while the other rider ropes the steer's hind feet. Scoring is based on the time it takes both riders to complete their task along with details such as if both hind feet were roped or if the rope went around the head or horns.

Bull Riding

Perhaps one of the most well-known events of Rodeo, Bull Riding is 8 seconds of pure adrenaline for bull, rider and audience! A rider mounts a bull in the chute, and then released into the arena. The rider holds on, attempting to stay mounted until the 8 second buzzer. Scoring is time-based, with penalties for form. Half of the score depends on the animal (the more challenging the animal, the higher the score) and half of the score depends on the rider.

Meet the Cowboys

After the Rodeo, spectators get a chance to meet the cowboys, Miss Rodeo USA and take photos with them or collect autographs.
