Stick Horse Show
World Championship Stick Horse Show & Rodeo in Lake City
August 6, 2016 - Registration Form
The event is typically the first Saturday in August, with registration beginning early at the Town Park in Lake City. The stick horse show was a favorite annual summer time event for more than a decade from 1988 until 1999. The event was created by then-Recreation Director Edna Mason, and remained a popular event for families, with fond memories. The event has been revived by Lake City DIRT and the Stick Horse Committee.
The show is made up of eight events including Showmanship, Western Pleasure, Bucking Horse, Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Jumping, Farrier Race, and Calf Roping. There is no entry fee. Showmanship and Western Pleasure classes are held for all ages. A special junior trail class is arranged for the 2-4 year olds and requires an adult handler. Older riders enter in the events in additional age categories. Lawn chairs and umbrellas (hopefully for shade not rain!) are encouraged. All riders should participate in the Grand Entry!
