Equine Rescuine announces their first annual rodeo on April 13 and 14 in Kingsland Georgia.
Last week we were introduced to the first Cattle Baron’s Ball and in a couple of weeks we’ll be witnessing the First Annual Equine Rescue Rodeo of South Georgia in Camden County. On April 13 and 14, this All American Event will be held in Kingsland Georgia on Highway 40 across from the K-Mart and the Publix Shopping Center.
We already introduced you to the fine people behind this event in a previous story on how they became a sanctioned horse rescue farm. One thing is for sure, they didn’t stop there. With this exciting event being sanctioned by the Professional Cowboy Association (PCA) and co-sanctioned by the Professional Armed Forces Rodeo Association (PAFRA) bringing some of the top contestant in rodeo to the field, the organizers are resurrecting an old American tradition for Camden County.
Rodeo is a window into a past much less complicated than today and the organizers, who retained stock contractor T Bar- T Rodeo out of Waycross, famously owned by Justin Thigpen, to provide the “talent”, expect some 2,000 spectators both nights. Proceeds from ticket sales are benefitting the non profit Equine Rescue of South Georgia and proceeds from food ticket sales will benefit Kingsland’s Caring Hearts Organization.
Some of the fun includes Bull Riding, Bareback Riding, Steer Wrestling, Calf Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Cowgirl’s Break Away Roping (Hmmm), Women’s Barrel Racing (double Hmmmm?) and Team Roping.
Mark your calendar for this fun event, while helping those who need funds to care for humans and animals that others have forsaken, abused and mistreated.
Today I heard a story of a puppy duct taped to a pole in Jacksonville, saved by a friend who provides intermediate home and care and looking for adoption.
I swear that if I ever catch some lowlife sub-human mistreating an animal in such a horrible way, Raiford may have a place for me on death row.
