Sheyenne Red River Rodeo Draws Hundreds of Student Competitors Across the Region

Students from North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Montana are taking part

WEST FARGO, N.D. — Get your cowboy hat and spurs on and get ready for a tradition that’s been going on for more than 40 years.

The Sheyenne Red River Rodeo is hosting their 44th annual high school rodeo. They’ve been doing a junior high rodeo for 14 years as well.

About 500 horses are involved with the event. Over 300 students from across North Dakota and Minnesota, as well as South Dakota and Montana, will be competing.

“It’s kind of fun to watch them compete. They have a ball doing it, and they’re improving their skills on competing and take it to the next level too, so as long as everybody’s safe and nobody gets hurt that’s a good thing happening,” Jeff Foss, president of the Sheyenne Red River Rodeo, said.

The rodeo will begin Saturday, April 27 at 8 a.m.
