LINCOLN, CAL. – District 3 of the California High School Rodeo Association held its first rodeo of the season September 20-22 at the Triple Crown Equestrian Center. We’d like to thank them for providing us with an amazing arena and facility.
Cutting started Friday night, then Saturday morning starting with the grand entry, with our queen Emily Harryman carrying the American flag for the national anthem, and many others carrying the flags of our sponsors, including Dodge and Cinch.
As the events went on throughout the weekend, we had many successful and impressive rides. CHSRA D3 is home of the Thundering 3 and we are lucky to be the home of many amazing athletes.
We look forward to another amazing rodeo season and can’t wait to make more exciting memories.
