2014 Wild Horse Race Team Roster for the Smithers Rodeo - August 21-23rd

Howdy folks !

Just received the "list" from the spectacular SRC President Jan with the Wild Horse Race teams ! The Smithers Rodeo WILD HORSE RACE is always a crowd favorite to watch and we are very proud to have some homegrown Smithers cowboys teaming up to bring some local competition to the arena.

What is the WILD HORSE RACE EVENT ?

2013 SRC Wild Horse Race Action - Photo Credit: SR McClary

 

One of the most exciting events, the Wild Horse Race has been said to be a rodeo in itself. Unlike the bucking stock used in the standard riding events, these horses are truly wild. They’ve never been ridden before, let alone saddled, and these mustangs plan on keeping it that way! These uncooperative beasts are called “outlaws” which is a term of endearment compared to some of the names tagged on them by the competitors.

The horses are haltered in the chute with a long lead rope. Two cowboys hold on to the end of the rope before the signal to start while the third member of the team holds the saddle in readiness. At the sound of the boom, the chute gate is opened and as soon as the horse crosses the chalk line in front of the chute, the three cowboys try their hardest to get the horse saddled.

A team of two hold the horse long enough to saddle him and allow the third cowboy to mount up, ride across the finish line, dismount, and run to the judge. Sounds simple and easy, but actual practice and theory become two complete strangers during this wild race. The general excitement and mass confusion plus the crowd all contribute to the fun in this favorite event for the spectators.

A big thank you to our SRC event sponsors with your generous help and donations.

2014 SRC Rodeo Clown Signed On - Jayson Charters

SRC NEWS UPDATE

Jayson Charters - 2014 Smithers Rodeo Club Clown Specialty Act in #Smithers

Jayson Charters - 2014 Smithers Rodeo Club Clown Specialty Act in #Smithers

The Smithers Rodeo Club is so excited to have Jayson Charters joining our team this year as the official 2014 SRC Rodeo Clown. Jayson is well known for his high energy & excitement in his performances and loves involving our fans !  

Ian Webster of the Merritt Herald composed a wonderful article about Jayson and how he is really a rodeo clown extraordinaire !

“He’s a spark plug. He never stops moving.”

Those were the words of one enthralled fan after witnessing for the first time the outrageous antics of rodeo clown Jayson Charters from Merritt.

Indeed, Charters’ performances are something to behold. All energy, excitement and eccentricity rolled into one. A chaotic blend of athleticism and hilarity that has audiences young and old splitting their sides laughing and begging for more.

It’s hard to believe that at the age of 42, Charters is a relative rookie at being a rodeo clown. With less than two years under his belt, he performs his routines like a seasoned veteran, and displays the timing and savvy of one who has spent a lifetime at his craft. Charters himself knows that he has at last found his true calling.

“It’s my destiny,” he says. “It’s where I was always meant to be. Everything in my life has brought me to this point.”

Little 4:00 minute sneak peek at 2014 SRC Rodeo Clown - Jayson Charters' past acts and his thoughts about what it takes to be a rodeo clown in British Columbia rodeo ! Be sure to give Jayson a big ole' Smithereens welcome when you see him this year ! 

The rodeo dates are approaching fast folks ! The SRC is working hard everyday leading up to the performances on August 21-23 to ensure that you ! ..have an incredible rodeo action packed experience with #smithersrodeo !
