A variety of bucking and roping fun will be featured this weekend in Cloverdale at the C Bar C Expo Center where the Indiana High School Rodeo Association will host a high school rodeo on Saturday, October 13 and again on Sunday, October 14.

The events will begin on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. featuring high school and junior high competitors from throughout the states of Indiana and Kentucky.

“It will be sixth grade through twelfth grade, the junior high team will join us, so the Indiana Cinch Team, the Indiana High School Rodeo Association and the Kentucky High School Rodeo Association,” IHSRA Rodeo Chairwoman Bethellen George said. “We have bareback riding, saddle broncs, girls breakaway roping, girls goat tying, calf roping, team roping, girls barrel racing, pole bending and bull riding. We will also have a couple of events only for the junior high, those are shootdogging, which is fun to watch and ribbon roping. It’s going to be a really busy weekend.”

Following in the evening at 7:00 p.m. will be an open rodeo where adults can also enter.

“I’m not sure how many adults we have, that’s good for the kids and it’s good for the adults, every once in awhile, a kid beats them,” she said with a laugh.

On Sunday, another round of the high school and junior high competitors will host rodeo action again at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are currently on sale by members of the Owen County 4-H and Putnam County 4-H and will also be available at the door for $10, while children ages 10 and younger will receive free admission. A weekend pass good for both Saturday and Sunday rodeo action is also available for $20.

The C Bar C Expo Center is located approximately one mile off of U.S. Highway 231 on Stardust Road.

The facility will also host an IBRA Barrel Race free of charge on Friday, October 19.
