The Wild West Events for 2021 are Horse vs. ATV Hide Racing, Donkey Racing, and Bubble Ball Bull Racing!

Horse vs. ATV Hide Racing – Thursday – $50 Entry Fee per Team

A horse or ATV will pull a hide with a rope to one end of the arena. While turning around the barrel, the other team member will hop on the hide, and ride to the finish line. The fastest horse team will win $150, the fastest ATV team will win $150, and the overall winner will receive a $100 bonus.


Donkey Racing – Friday – $50 Entry Fee per Team

A two person team competes to race their donkey around a barrel at the opposite end of the arena.

The first team back wins $250.
