WINKELMAN, Ariz. – The Central Arizona College rodeo team will saddle up and ride out to the Aravaipa Campus on Fri., Oct. 19, for a community show that is free to attend.

The special event will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will allow visitors to meet members of the team in person.

The Vaqueros and Vaqueras will display their roping skills to the public during the one-hour show. Anyone who loves horses, is interested in the Wild West, or is a cowboy or cowgirl at heart should make plans to attend.

CAC’s Aravaipa Campus is located at 80440 E. Aravaipa Road, in Eastern Pinal County between the towns of Winkelman and Mammoth. The show will take place near the cafeteria (Building D).

The showcase will commence with short presentations from members of the rodeo team. Attendees will learn what it takes to compete, what these athletes – especially the rough stock riders – wear during their rodeo shows, how much they train, and more.

Once all of the questions are answered, the team will introduce one of its public-friendly horses. A few demonstrations will take place, such as roping practice, and guests will have an opportunity for a hands-on experience.

To RSVP, or for more information, including directions to the Aravaipa Campus, please visit AVCRodeo.Eventbrite.com, or contact Dora Tompkins by phone at 520-494-5223.
