July 3rd/4th/Fireworks updates

Posted June 29, 2020

Patriots, rodeo fans and contestants. We are planning to rodeo Friday and Saturday and have fireworks on the 4th. However, we need your help so that we can continue to offer the great western tradition of rodeo and stand proud for our American independence. Our capacity for spectators is 2,500 and the Incident Management Team is limiting us to 250 people on almost 10 acres at an outside venue. If you are a proud American that thinks we need to have as many people be able to celebrate the USA freedom and all it stands for, please reach out to these people and ask them to open the gates to more freedom loving Americans to rodeo and salute our freedom.

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
