The Exceptional Rodeo is a free event tailored to children with special needs between the ages of 4 and 12 because of the size of the obstacles, but all ages are welcome. Children will experience adapted events such as stick-horse barrel races, stuffed bucking bulls and broncs and try their hand at roping. Each participant receives a T-shirt, cowboy hat and a trophy. Participation is free, but because space is limited, registration is required. Parents of children with special needs may still register their children online
to participate. (Scroll down to the event on the registration page.)
Castle Rock Parks and Recreation is assisting with registration, so parents will need to create an account on their recreation system or login. If you have questions about registration, please reach out to Austin Wheatley with the Town of Castle Rock:
