Debbie Pedrazzi Memorial Cutting

Date: July 20, 2023
Time: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The 3rd Annual Debbie Pedrazzi Memorial Cutting will take place during the Thursday, July 20th performance on the track that surrounds the rodeo arena. The event honors the memory of Debbie Pedrazzi, California Rodeo Past President Dave Pedrazzi’s late wife, who was a world champion and participated in cutting events across the country.

In the cutting event, a rider enters a herd of cattle, separates one animal out of the herd and gently guides it to the center of the arena or pen, then attempts to prevent it from returning to the herd. The agility and skill from the horse and rider is an example of remarkable athleticism. This flashy and fast event highlighting skilled riders and their talented equine partners is sure to bring excitement to the performance and educate the audience about western practices that originated from ranch work.

The California Rodeo cutting event will feature top riders and horses who qualified by participating at three events leading up to the California Rodeo.

The qualifying riders for July 20, 2023 are:

1. Caitlin Antle Wilson - Thiskittywearsacrown
