You do not want to miss the parade Saturday morning! This year's theme - "Rodeo Forever". Congratulations to this year's Grand Marshal, Mary Quibers!
Your PRCA Rodeo Announcer is Don Jesser. He will call all of the rodeo action and keep rodeo fans abreast of what is happening in the arena with all of our cowboys and cowgirls! Your Sound Engineer is Anita Jesser. Don and Anita are two of the best in their respective fields!
Appearing for the first time in Stonyford will be Dusty Barrett ( website / Facebook ) as our barrelman and clown. He is a champion saddle bronc rider who quit competing in 1998 to start clowning. He is the oldest grandson of the long time rodeo clown and entertainer Dick "Old Man" Barrett. Now with his animal acts--such as his Roman Riding Ponies, Trick Riding Pony, and "Squirt Gun" the trick pony--he is one of the up and coming great specialty performers in rodeo today.
Bridwell Pro Rodeo ( website / Facebook ) will provide the animal athletes for the 74th Stonyford Rodeo. Haley Bridwell will be your Rodeo Secretary; Haley Bridwell and Molly Twitchell will be your Rodeo Timers.
Congratulations to the Stonyford Rodeo Committee - They were recognized at the 2016 PRCA Convention in Las Vegas Nevada by the Women's Professional Rodeo Association for the Justin Boots WPRA Best Footing Award for most improved grounds in the California Circuit. Congratulations!
Good luck to all and safe travels!
