We can’t thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting the rodeo. We could not do this with out the help of spectators, sponsors, volunteers, and cowboys. The sport of rodeo is the purest American sport that is left in this world. We aren’t trying to just promote a sport, but also a way of life that everyone, at one point in time, has wanted to be a part of. In the 29 years of River Oaks Arena, this year was hands down the best ever, and you all are the ones who made it all possible.

Big shout out to Tristin McClain in the Saddle Bronc riding. Tristin has been a big help this year, long night’s of putting out signs, helping cut grass etc... He drove 20 hours to Texas at the beginning of the week to get moved back in for school. Then gets on a plane, and flys back home to make it to the rodeo. First horse wrecks him out, he cowboys up and gets on a reride horse to take 1st place. Way to be a cowboy!

We have always encouraged people to space out when coming to enjoy the rodeo. That was the main reason we built our arena in this style set up. We want people to be able to enjoy the rodeo from any seat and still have a great view while being comfortable and not crowded on top of each other. We encourage everyone this year to space out. We do allow chairs and beach towels, set them up around the hill top or on the banks. You want find another rodeo venue with this type of atmosphere.

When we built the arena in the bowl, our main goal was to be able to allow people to have a great view and watch the rodeo from any seat, while being comfortably spaced from one another. This year we encourage people to spread out. We do allow lawn chairs to be put out around the hill top, or you can bring beach towels and lay them out on the banks of the bowl. Gates Open @ 6pm Rodeo starts @ 8pm

River Oaks Arena Rodeo 2018
Ware Shoals, SC

Catch me shooting anywhere. There were some beautiful horses. I don’t know whether this sport is considered bravery or crazy. Real bull riding is NOTHING like that old mechanical bull.

Huge shoutout to the crowd that showed up last night! Despite some rain, we still had a great turn out! Thank you to all the dedicated folks that came and let the show continue to go on!

ONE day away!! The weather is looking good for the hours of the rodeo. Rain or shine, the show will still go on! Don’t forget to stop by the T-shirt stand and purchase your River Oak’s Rodeo T-shirt. We sold out early last year!!

Gates open at 6pm and the show starts at 8pm.

We will have many different vendors that will be selling their items! We will also have pony rides for the kids, and other fun events and activities for the kids, including the famous calf scramble! Also, don’t forget to stop by the concession stand and funnel cake truck for some delicious food!!

There will also be an ATM this year for anyone that will need one.

Parents of district 50 elementary kids, your child should be coming home with a *kids free per paying adult* ticket for Friday night, so be on the lookout for those!!! 🐂
