Popular Ranch Rodeo to return to Arapahoe in September PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 August 2014 00:00

Spencer Shifflet is bringing ranch rodeo to Arapahoe.
He will be hosting another ranch rodeo in Arapahoe on Saturday, September 13th.  Shifflet hosted a ranch rodeo as part of the Prairie Pioneer days in July, but this event may be bigger than the 4th of July event.
Ranch rodeo events typically use combinations of roping, horsemanship, and ground-working skills to create a more genuine presentation of real-life ranch work. “Our events are actual events that happen on a ranch.”
The difference between the regular professional rodeo and ranch rodeo is subtle. Ranch rodeo focuses on traditional working cowboys who work in teams.  They perform the work that typically occurs on ranches, professional rodeos are typically individual competitors who show off individual skills. Ranch rodeo typically does not showcase bucking stock such as broncos or bulls. And professional rodeo uses specific gear designed for rodeo use: tack and rigging at the ranch rodeo is normal tack used on a ranch.
Some of the events include doctoring, marking and separating stock, tie down, and yoking. Shifflet explained, “the doctoring is where you head and heel a steer,” -- meaning the cowboy ropes a steer. Other events include marking stock, the tie down, trailer loading, team penning, and yoking.
