ESSEX ROCK N RODEO KICKS OFF 2014 RODEO SEASON
It's rodeo time again! Although you wouldn't know it from looking outside. The Essex rodeo is just 6 weeks away on May 17 - 18. Don't miss this event held at the Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village just outside of Kingsville, Ontario! We had over 12,000 people in attendance at the first one.
There will be concerts both days with Brett Kissel headlining.
Brett just won a Juno award as "Breakthrough Artist of the Year"! Congratulations Brett.
If you love country music, delicious food and great rodeo action, this is the place for you on the 2014 May long weekend. There will be plenty of Coors Light and other Molson/Coors brands for the beer drinkers and of course, if you like a shot of delicious spirits, Forty Creek Distillery will be pouring their brand too.

Someone asked who will be sanctioning our rodeos this year. All of our rodeos will be sanctioned with the CCA and the ACEC. This again gives cowboys and cowgirls in the East an opportunity to qualify for 4 finals. Between our tour and the RAM tour there are currently 19 rodeos in Ontario. There are also a number of rodeos in Quebec under the ACEC.
The CCA has expanded their entry eligibility policy and will now accept any card. Check it out online at: www.canadiancowboys.ca
Wildhorse Productions has 9 rodeos on the schedule for the 2014 rodeo season. The top 5 cowboys and cowgirls from our Summer Tour will qualify for the Hi-Performance Showdown on Sunday Aug. 31 at the Powassan Smoke n Spurs Festival, another HUGE bash to crown the Champions and end the year.
Check back often, more information as the season goes on.
See you down the trail.
