KIMBALL - Kimball is preparing to host the 13th Annual Kimball Ranch Rodeo this weekend.
The rodeo, which is sanctioned by the Western States Ranch Rodeo, celebrates the area's ranching history. It's not a PRCA rodeo, but instead a rodeo that features everyday working activities cowboys may encounter on the ranch.
Full-time and part-time ranch cowboys compete in five ranch-style team events, including saddle bronc riding (with ranch saddles), branding and doctoring, team tying, trailer loading and wild cow milking.
The Kimball Ranch Rodeo began in 2009 and is held every year to raise funds for local charities.
Justin Perry told News Channel Nebraska last year they try to use the funds for you and 4-H programs.
The WSRRA was formed in 2010 to promote and preserve traditions through a sanctioned ranch rodeo association. All qualifying ranch teams, and top fifteen individual event contestants, will be invited to compete at the annual WSRRA National Finals Rodeo held the first week of November in Winnemucca, Nevada.
Saturday's event at the Kimball-Banner County Fairgrounds begins at 5:30 p.m.
