The Bulls and Broncs event goes at 7 pm at the Rodeo Grounds, including bull riding, saddle bronc, and bareback riding.

There will be also be beer gardens at the event.

Last year because of Covid restrictions, the rodeo was pared down to the three Bulls and Broncs events, and it was a success, with more than 1,000 people in the stands.

Because the three events are usually the most popular rodeo events, and because of the success last year, organizers decided to stick with the Bulls and Broncs format this year.

A Wild Pony event will also be part of the Bulls and Broncs event, with a $300 cash prize to the winning team.

Team entries for the Wild Pony event can be sent to Chelan Beckett at 306-434-8976 The event is for teams of three, 12 years of age and under. Toe-covered shoes must be worn, and helmets and equipment are provided

Also on July 16, the Texas 4000 Ride for Cancer Research will be stopping in Moosomin.

This group of bike riders will be leaving from Austin, Texas, biking for 70 days and ending their trek in Anchorage Alaska. They will make Moosomin a tour stop on day 43.

The Texas 4000’s mission is to cultivate student leaders and engage communities in the fight against cancer. They share hope by letting those touched by cancer know that they are riding for them and fighting for a world without cancer. They share knowledge by bringing life-saving information about cancer prevention to communities and providing leadership development training to tomorrow’s leaders. They share charity by contributing to cancer research and cancer support services while developing the next generation of volunteers and philanthropists.

Texas 4000 envisions a world where all students can become leaders in creating a cancer-free future.

The group of student riders from the University of Texas are fundraising for the fight against cancer. Since their inception in 2003 they have raised in excess of $7 million. This is the longest annual charity bike ride in the world.

They have confirmed 26 bikers will be in Moosomin and staying the night.
