Most people are familiar with the famous Big Loop Rodeo in the spring, but an equally exciting rodeo kicks off this week—the 14th Annual Owyhee’s Rope and Ride. This rodeo benefits the Owyhee and Malhuer multiple use and legal defense fund.
Friday at 1 p.m. Big Loop cow roping bursts into the arena. Saturday’s schedule starts at 9 a.m. with Mixed Team Branding with stock saddle Bronc Riding at noon. At 2:30 Muley Roping gets underway at 2:30. (Mule hide-wrapped saddle horns must be used; no one is roping mules). Sunday includes Men’s Team Branding and more roping action.
