Exceptional Rodeo – brought to you by Pepsi of Great Falls
Before Thursday’s performance of the PRCA Big Sky Pro Rodeo, there will be sixty unique rodeo enthusiasts learning all about rodeo, from some of the best cowboys and cowgirls around.
The Big Sky Pro Rodeo Committee will host its annual Exceptional Rodeo. The event was initiated in 2013 and welcomes rodeo fans, with various disabilities, to participate in modified events that resemble those of the professional rodeo. Each participant is given the opportunity to work one-on-one with a cowboy and/or cowgirl to experience what the life of rodeo is all about.
The morning will start with a group photo to capture the memories of the day. Then they will participant in each of the seven events of rodeo. Including but not limited to: steer roping, a manually run bucking barrel and barrel racing. However, you can’t fully experience rodeo without rodeo royalty and some clowning around with the rodeo clown.
“All of Montana’s rodeos offer fans an amazing experience, but when it comes to special events for members of the community, this committee is definitely a trailblazer,” Big Sky Pro Rodeo Committee member, Lindsey Kunkel says. “To date, this is the very first and only event of its kind in the state of Montana.”
Contestants MUST have a disability and registration is required. For more information on the event or to register, please contact Eagle Mount Great Falls (406-454-1449) or Special Olympics of Montana.
