The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) will be hosting their first ever rodeo on Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1 in the covered arena. The Round-Up Rodeo will begin each day at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase at the gate. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the rodeo. Plenty of parking is available on site.

As FENCE’s first rodeo, this event aims to be the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Come out to support this great, non-profit organization! All proceeds from the event will go to support FENCE programs such as TROT (Therapeutic Riding of Tryon) and their educational programs.

Each day of the rodeo will begin with an opening ceremony. This year the opening ceremony will honor our brothers and sisters on the thin blue line, our community members in law enforcement both active and fallen.
