Lil' Rustlers Rodeo

Fear is Not an Obstacle

This is true for a rodeo contestant of any kind. At Lil' Rustlers Rodeo, the contestants, who have mental or physical disabilities, participate in a barrel race with stick horses, steer roping and bull riding. Even though the “steer” is a friendly-looking plastic head mounted on a bale of hay, and the “bull” is a big plush see-saw rocked by cowboys, the thrills and smiles are all genuine.

Located in the Main Arena of NRG Center
