The Bit & Spur Riding Club continues to provide activities for all ages. A few of the Jr. Club events include Western Pleasure, Bareback Pleasure, the Egg Race, the Stake Race, the Flag Race, Barrel Racing, and Pole Bending. Club members also put on team penning twice a week, open to all riders of all ages and abilities. The club supports the Tooele High School Rodeo Association and provides donations to several local charity organizations.

The girls were judged on horsemanship which included completing a reining pattern. Then the contest moved inside the Bit n' Spur clubhouse where each girl was judged on poise, personality and stage presence based on a speech written and presented by each contestant. (I'm in the process of finding out what the topic for the speech was and I'll let you know as soon as I find out).
We are so grateful to Heiden Orthopedics for supporting the Rodeo Princess competition and we are looking forward to the next phase - the July 3rd and 4th Bit n' Spur Rodeo. We will have Rodeo tickets available this next week and either Jim or I will deliver them to your business address.
