2024 Special Kids Day Monday, May 13, 2024

This program expressly for our “Special Kids – Mentally and Physically Challenged” friends has been going on for over 50 years. With help from the Asphalt Cowboys and our other affiliated clubs we offer a special day of horseback & wagon rides and rodeo clown performances just for these wonderful kids. Done without competition from other school kids, this really gives these youngsters a chance to shine.

freedom of motion. For someone who cannot walk, see, communicate, or accomplish
basic tasks without extreme difficulty, therapeutic riding is a powerful and liberating

**All riders are supervised; however, helmets are NOT provided**
