Big Bend Round-Up Rodeo & Horse Racing – 4:00 pm
Bucking bulls, bareback and saddle broncs, barrel racing, steer wrestling, calf and team roping are all traditional parts of the Big Bend Round-Up held annually during the NCW Fair. Mutton Bustin' was introduced last year and brought the crowd to their feet as kids don protective helmets and grab onto the back of a feisty sheep. The Wild Horse Race is another popular challenge as man and horse battle for dominance. Horse racing as been a big part of the Big Bend Round-Up for nearly as long as there's been a fair. Thrill at the speed of these beautiful thoroughbreds and quarter horses in this fierce competition. For over 50 years, the Indian Relay Race has been the culminating event of the annual Round-Up! Teams consist of 3 horses and 4 people – 3 team members are catchers and holders while the jockey changes horses three times during this exciting race. Open bleacher rodeo seating is included in your fair admission ticket — covered grandstand seating is just $5 per person.
