There was certainly plenty of mud at the For The Kids Rodeo, June 13-14, 2014 in Covington, TN. Lone Star Rodeo Company brought their stock to the show that benefitted the Boys & Girls Club of the Hatchie River Region. Performances started at 7:30 pm both nights, with $500 added money incentives for the competitors.
In addition to the usual rodeo contest events – Bareback Bronc Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Calf Roping, Cowgirl’s Breakaway Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, Cowgirl’s Barrel Racing, and Brahma Bull Riding – there were some special added attractions specially for the kids. Fashion was the thing for Best Dressed Cowboy and Cowgirl (10 & under), but mud prevented the Kids Gold Rush. Rodeo Clown Reggie Purvis brought his antics to entertain the crowd. Cutter Madison showed his horse training skills with his Liberty Horse Flying Feathers and pony Little Bear.
The sea of mud made for a little more level playing field in the game of cowboys vs. bulls. Jerry Rogers rode Rum Runner past the 8 second mark, partly because Rum Runner almost stopped and stood still at one point. Evin Golliday completed his ride on 7-year-old Cutthroat with a score of 83. Cutthroat had previously tossed every cowboy who had tried to ride him.
