Riverbank News - - SPORT -

Things are heat­ing up this sum­mer in The Cow­boy Cap­i­tal of the World.

The Oak­dale Rodeo Grounds in neigh­bor­ing Oak­dale will host a spe­cial event on Satur­day, July 28 to cel­e­brate the Na­tional Day of the Cow­boy.

All are wel­come to at­tend the an­nual Ranch Rodeo, when cow­boys and cow­girls from sev­eral coun­ties from around the re­gion will come to com­pete in events that sim- ulate what a full-time work­ing cow­boy does. This is a West­ern States Ranch Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion (WSRRA) sanc­tioned event.

Open and Women’s Di­vi­sions will com­pete in sort, rope and doc­tor, calf brand­ing, team rop­ing and trailer load and tie. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Women’s Divi­sion will in­clude a steer stop­ping com­pe­ti­tion.

Buck­les and cash prizes will be awarded to the win­ning teams in each divi­sion.

“The Sad­dle Club is very grate­ful to many lo­cal com­mu­nity busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als for their spon­sor­ship of buck­les and their gen­er­ous do­na­tions to help sup­port the Club and con­tinue to pro­mote and pre­serve our West­ern her­itage,” said Oak­dale Sad­dle Club Trea­surer Rachel Heiny.

This event is free to spec­ta­tors. The Oak­dale Sad­dle Club Rodeo Grounds are at 1624 E. F St.; Oak­dale.
