Horse & Rider

Let ’er Buck


There’s no Western experience quite like the Pendleton RoundUp. What began in 1910 as “a frontier exhibition of picturesqu­e pastimes, Native American and military spectacles, cowboy racing, and bronco busting for the championsh­ip of the Northwest” has turned into a weeklong celebratio­n of Western heritage. The rodeo at the Round-Up is held on the grass infield of the Pendleton Round-Up Stadium with the best cowboys, cowgirls, horses, and livestock going headto-head.

The Pendleton Round-Up honors the tradition of the American West in its entirety—displaying the horses and cowboys that shaped the frontier while highlighti­ng the Native American cultures of the Confederat­e Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservatio­n who live eight miles east of Pendleton. Parades, rodeo action, concerts, and shopping will keep you busy on the Round-Up grounds; the Round-Up has been named the PRCA’s Best Outdoor Rodeo seven times in its storied history. The entire town rolls out the red carpet for Round-Up week, welcoming visitors to enjoy a region teeming with cowboy heritage.
