The UWRF Rodeo club, started in 1964, is a group of students sharing the common bond of horses and the sport of rodeo. Students do not have to own a horse or rodeo competitively to be a member. Rodeo Club members work together to hold a two day rodeo every fall.
In addition, the club hosts clinics conducted by professional cowboys/cowgirls in barrel racing, goat typing, roping and rough stock events. Beyond the rodeo arena, the club participates in parades, trail rides, bowling skiing and other fun activities.
UWRF Rodeo Team
As a club member you have the opportunity to compete on the UWRF Rodeo Team. UWRF does not limit the number of riders who compete and even those who have never competed before are welcome to participate. Practices are held every Thursday and Sunday in the indoor and outdoor arenas with the team's practice stock. Members show a true team spirit, with more experienced members helping the novice riders.
