Rodeo Number 2August 31, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C
Cowboy hats at the ready!! The town of Merritt holds the Nicola Valley Pro Rodeo every year and we were all very lucky to be able to go and enjoy it!
It was a much smaller event than the Calgary Stampede (of course!) which had its pros and cons. It was smaller so definitely easier to see what was happening, but also not as many competitors and not quite as well organised! They had 2 events for kids - barrel racing for the girls (the youngest competitor was only 6 years old!) and a wild pony race. That was quite funny to watch!
Once we were back at the ranch, the residents had organised a pot luck dinner and had invited the volunteers to join them. A lovely end to a fun day!Read more
