Saddle Up

Each September we put on a rodeo in San Bernardino, California and the proceeds are used to benefit youth organizations in our county. As the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Rodeo Youth Outreach Coordinators our specific goal is to provide kids with an introduction to rodeo and to help keep the western heritage alive and growing.

In an effort to accomplish our goals we hold a horse camp at the rodeo for selected youth in our community to attend, free of charge. During this camp kids are provided a hands on experience with horses to include basic handling, grooming and bathing. After they attend our camp we provide them with a brand new pair of boots and a month of free horseback riding lessons for both the child and one adult.

Golden Circle of Champions recipients

Each year the parents of approximately 15,300 kids will hear the words “your child has cancer.”

In 2016 the Golden Circle of Champions formed in conjunction with the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo to raise awareness, as well as funds, to help children and their families who are battling life threatening pediatric cancer and other illnesses. It has partnered with the Red Bluff Round-Up, along with the Las Vegas Events, the PRCA, and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation to sponsor 10 families chosen from PRCA-sponsored rodeo across the nation. These families will attend and be honored at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Each Golden Circle of Champion child and their family will be treated to a “Champion” style banquet, where they will dine with NFR rodeo champions, receive special gifts, and learn about rodeo. Following the banquet they will be whisked away to a magical night at the Wrangler NFR.
