High School Students Spar at the Dixie Six Rodeo

The UHSRA contestants compete in the Dixie Six Rodeo, a rodeo in Hurricane Utah. Contestants compete in the Dixie Six 3 weekends in row. In those three weekends, the Dixie Rodeo team puts on 6 rodeos. Contestants compete Friday evening and Saturday morning the first three weekends in November. Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors are all allowed to compete with the UHSRA in whatever events they want. Contestants can compete in as many events as they would like. 

       There are many many events that the UHSRA are able to compete in including barrel racing, bull riding, saddle bronc, bareback, goat ting, breakaway, pole bending, girls cutting, boys cutting, trap shoot, reined cow horse, steer wrestling, team roping, and rifle shoot. 

      At the fairground there are three different arenas we use to compete in: the covered arena, the large arena, and the small arena. In the covered arena pole bending and barrel racing. In the large arena they do all the rough stock ( Bull riding, Saddle bronc, Bareback). In the small arena they do Goat tying, breakaway, and tie down roping.  They also have many many stalls that you rent for your horse. They are over by the covered arena and more south of the covered arena. 

       The third weekend of the Dixie six they have cowboy prom. Anyone is allowed to come to cowboy prom of any age. The Dixie rodeo is the last high school before winter. We get the winter off and finish off our rodeo season in the spring. At the Dixie six people camp out Friday night to Saturday and usually go home after the rodeo Saturday morning.

     Dixie Six is an extraordinary rodeo that so many contestants love to compete in. The rodeo world is an awesome world to be in and it’s an incredible opportunity to showcase one’s talents and skills.
