Miss California Rodeo Horsemanship Contest takes place on the track Thursday, July 18th at 8:00am. Family and friends are welcome to attend. The event is open to the public and there is no admission charge (just enter the arena via the small gate north of the Main Rodeo Office). It's a great opportunity for aspiring queens to learn about the contest.
Horsemanship is 40% of the Miss California Rodeo contest. Horsemanship will include a short reining pattern and a presentation run on contestant’s own horse. Each contestant will also participate in a draw for the exchange of contestants’ horses. A short reining pattern will be performed by each contestant on the horse selected in the draw.
