Welcome to the
This year the High Country Stampede Rodeo is in it’s 31st season. Our motto here at the rodeo is “The High Country Stampede Rodeo, where everyone has fun!” Attendance last year was a record breaker. We had locals, front rangers, out of state visitors, foreign visitors, first time rodeo fans, and some fun family reunions, all who came out to cheer on Mutton Busters, Calf Scramblers, and over 2000 contestants. With beautiful Colorado sunsets and warm summer nights, we hosted over 8000 spectators.
I am sure you have heard that our past President and one of the founding members retired after 30 years of service. The WPHA/High Country Stampede Rodeo family would like to thank Dale Sonnek and Janet Engel for their commitment and dedication to the High Country Stampede Rodeo and Winter Park Horseman’s Association. Yes, we have a great Membership and Board that will continue to work hard to produce a fun filled High Country Stampede Rodeo series full of fast horses and bucking bulls.
I would like to invite anyone interested to become a member of the Winter Park Horseman’s Association and join us in this fabulous production. All it takes is $5.00 a year to be a Member in Good Standing and have voting rights and help make decisions. Please call 970-449-9040 for more information on becoming a member of WPHA. Contestants do not need to be a member of the association to participate in the rodeos.
I invite you to come out and enjoy some family fun and clean mountain air while cheering for some fabulous rodeo contestants, both in our Junior Rodeo Series (growing every year to be one of the largest in our State) and our Adult Rodeo Series.
