With event posters out and livestock supplies coming in, Kindersley is raring to go for its 26th annual rodeo.
Over the weekend of June 1-3, the whole town can put their cowboy/cowgirl on and enjoy fun-filled activities.

“The whole Kindersley Rodeo committee has been doing whatever needs to be done in order to get this event up and running,” reported Tyler Ritchie, current president of said committee. “It’s been awesome to see their hard work paying off.” Ritchie and his wife Ashley, treasurer of Kindersley Rodeo, have been mainstays of the committee for over seven years. “We are real rodeo people, and so making events like this happen is both a responsibility and a privilege.”
Ritchie pointed out that every year the committee would be hard put without the support of individuals and businesses in the community. “Every year, and this year is no exception, we have been overwhelmed by the support of our community,” affirmed Ritchie. “This support and obvious interest definitely drives our committee to do its absolute best to bring Kindersley the best rodeo on the circuit.”
