Shenandoah Pro Rodeo 2017The annual Shenandoah Pro Rodeo competition is ready to come out of the chute, July 1st & 2nd, 2017, at Galena’s Shenandoah Riding Center!

There’s nothing quite like a genuine pro rodeo for excitement, fun, and a taste of the Wild West! Rodeos are a wonderful combination of traditional ranching skills and athletic competition that never fail to amaze.

The Shenandoah Riding Center brings real pro rodeo entertainment to Galena two nights every year. The annual event includes all the traditional rodeo favorites. Bareback riding, steer Wwrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, calf roping, barrel racing, and bull riding are all on the menu.

The Shenandoah Pro Rodeo draws professional cowboys and cowgirls from all across the nation. Three Hills Rodeo Company have rounded up the buckingest broncs and meanest bulls they could find for this year’s event. You’ll thrill to these incredible young people facing some of the toughest 8 seconds an athlete ever has to endure.

It’s not a real rodeo without a little non-competitive entertainment and the Shenandoah Pro Rodeo has that in spades.

The One Armed Bandit & Company, rodeo’s 12-time entertainer of the year, will be on hand to steal the show. This amazing group of western entertainers will amaze you with their full throttle exhibition of cowboys, horses, mules, longhorn steers, and buffalo.

Of course there will be much “horsing around” by the rodeo clowns. While distracting an enraged bull from a fallen rider is a deadly serious task, rodeo clowns always manage to make the job seem a lark. “Mutton Busting” is another a fan favorite with little local buckaroos have a chance to prove their sand on the back of a wild and wooly sheep. So fun and cute.

The whole shebang will once again be emceed by ProRodeo announcer Anthony Lucia, star of TV’s Rodeo Girls. Anthony will be joined by popular rodeo-comedian and color-commentator Rider Kiesner. Each evening wraps up with a fireworks show set to music and a free barn dance.

Don’t miss out!
