The High Desert Stampede is right around the corner and they are excited about the world class talent joining us in Central Oregon at the end of March. In their continuing mission to recognize and promote the western way of life, western heritage and sense of community they have partnered with Rascal Rodeo this year.
The High Desert Stampede announced that for the first time in Central Oregon in several years, they will be working with Rascal Rodeo, a nonprofit organization based in Pasco, Washington. Rascal Rodeo’s aim is to provide rodeo experiences to people with disabilities because as they say, “Abilities are Greater than Disabilities.”
Rascal What? Rascal Rodeo. Definition: Western experiences, simulated rodeo events and horse experiences for people with disabilities. They’re bringing this event to their rodeo to give very special people the experience of a lifetime that without the work of this nonprofit and our community, wouldn’t be possible.
They are inviting anyone, of any age, to participate at no cost. Simply register ahead of time at rascalrodeo.com and plan to see them March 30, 10am on the arena dirt at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo First Interstate Bank Center.
Volunteers are needed for this event. No rodeo or horse experience is necessary to volunteer or participate.
