Shouts of joy filled the Silver Spurs Arena on the final day of this year’s 150th Silver Spurs Rodeo, and it happened during the Silver Spurs Riding Club’s favorite rodeo… the Exceptional Rodeo.
This year’s rodeo saw record crowds on Friday and Saturday night, and again during its Sunday afternoon “matinee’ rodeo, but on Sunday morning, everyone who is part of the Silver Spurs Riding Club will tell you the same thing, the Exceptional Rodeo is everyone’s favorite rodeo event.
“The Exceptional Rodeo is an awesome event. We are blessed with so many people that have come to perform here at the Silver Spurs Arena, to experience a little taste of rodeo, to help each other, and to touch each other’s lives,” Silver Spurs Riding Club Big Boss Clifton Chapman said during the Exceptional Rodeo.
Silver Spurs Riding Club volunteers, along with Rodeo Queens from all over the United States and Canada lead the very special kiddos through the five stations of a traditional rodeo — steer wrestling, barrel racing, roping, bull riding, and bronc riding, utilizing life-sized, interactive animal props, and some wonderfully gentle horses. Participants also have the opportunity to take photos with the Queens of the Miss Silver Rodeo Court.
After experiencing all the rodeo events on the Silver Spurs Arena dirt, each contestant wearing a cowboy hat and number on their back, stepped upon to receive their Silver Spurs Exceptional Rodeo Award and hear their name and that very special announcement… you are a winner! And, they certainly all were, as is the Silver Spurs Riding Club. Positively Osceola thanks everyone who every year makes the Exceptional Rodeo… everyone’s favorite rodeo!
