FENCE to host their first rodeo on June 30, July 1

Published 10:00 pm Thursday, June 15, 2017

Kick off your July Fourth week by taking the family to the rodeo at Foothills Equestrian Nature Center! On Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1, FENCE will be having their first Round-Up Rodeo in the covered arena.

The rodeo begins at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m. As part of the International Professional Rodeo Association (IPRA), the rodeo will feature bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling, cowgirls break away roping, team roping, cowgirls barrel racing, and tie down roping.

Although families are encouraged to come to the rodeo on both nights, Friday night is branded as our “family night.” At the event, food and snacks will be available for purchase and there will be plenty of parking on site.

FENCE encourages the community to come out to the rodeo and support this great, nonprofit organization. It is hoped that this event will be the largest fundraiser of the year for FENCE. All proceeds from the event will go to support FENCE’s programs and events such as the Therapeutic Riding of Tryon program (TROT), youth and adult educational programs, summer camps, free family events, and much more.

The funds raised will also help to support upkeep and maintenance of our 384 acres of land and five miles of trails which are open to the public 365 days a year at no cost.

For more information about this event, contact FENCE at 828-859-9021, info@fence.org or visit fence.org. FENCE is located at 3381 Hunting Country Road in Tryon.
