The Cowboy Challenge is a fun event with multiple levels showing how riders and horses work together to cross water, open gates, herd cows and other obstacles. Come on out and cheer on the participants who will be competing for an end of the year belt buckle! The event starts at 9 a.m. and registration forms can be found online at
