Special needs children in San Dimas and surrounding communities can participate
in real rodeo events at the 2012 San Dimas Challenged Buckaroos Rodeo. Events include bull riding, bareback riding, calf roping, and
barrel racing. Children are paired with a professional cowboys or cowgirl to assist them with the different events. Instead of riding
real bucking bulls and horses, the children ride stick horses, rope “dummy” steers and ride a specially designed, hand-rocked bareback
horse and bull. All the children who participate in the San Dimas Challenged Buckaroos Rodeo receive a T-shirt, bandana, lariat rope
and a photo taken with their cowboy/cowgirl partner.
"The Challenged Buckaroo Rodeo is an opportunity for some very special kids
to Cowboy-Up and Rodeo! Experience the excitement of meeting real cowboys and cowgirls and cheered on by their fans in the arena and
in the grandstands. It is a wonderful way for rodeo fans and the Rodeo Committee to give a great day to some great kids," says Bob
Hardcastle this past year's Buckaroo Rodeo Chairperson.
