New virus schedule update

Posted Yesterday

As per govt' restrictions, we have postponed the fitst 2 rodeo'sin June (6th and 13th). We are watching for further information, but we have just postponed and we will post when those rescheduled rodeo's will be. Thanks for your patience. The Flying Heels Rodeo is such an important fabric of Granby and Grand County, for spectators and contestants alike, we are working our hardest to make the rodeo season happen at some point.

Virus schedule update

Posted May 07, 2020

We at the Flying Heels Rodeo are so excited about all the new improvemnets at the facility this season. Covered grandstands to accomodate more fans under shelter will allow us to practice the "social distancing" even if there is inclement weather.

We are following guidlines and looking for direction as the state opens up and the rodeo season unfolds. Our contestants are naturally "socially distanced" as the nature of people on horseback, however, we do want to allow our fans to enjoy the rodeo at comfortable distance, so we are excited to add many more seats under shelter.

We still have exciting line up of contestants and special acts including the famous Westernaires from Golden, CO at 3 of our rodeos, plus local talent joining in with the 5280's Trick and Fancy Riding Team, along with some staples we have yearly.

Please keep checking for updates and don't hesitate to call, and in these trying times, sponsorship is always welcome. 970-531-5465
