The Largest Most Exciting Ranch Hand Rodeo in Nevada Will Not Disappoint


In early March, horse trailer after horse trailer will line up across the grounds of the Winnemucca Events Complex. The goosenecks will be out in full force for Winnemucca’s biggest event: The Winnemucca Ranch Hand Rodeo Weekend. Both a showcase and a heavy dose of real buckaroo action will give you a glimpse into the culture and life of the Great Basin cowboy.

This year’s event will take place from February 27th, through March 3, drawing participants and spectators from numerous Western states and Canada to this north-central Nevada town; in all, more than 2,500 people are expected to pack the Winnemucca Events Complex.

This year will again welcome the action packed RHR Barrel Bash, a perfect addition to a weekend that includes the hugely popular Ranch Hand Rodeo, Wild Horse Races, Cow Dog Trials, Stock Horse Challenge, Western Trade Show, and Kids’ Dummy Roping and Stick Horse Barrels.

The Ranch, Rope, and Performance Horse Sale also gathers horse sellers and buyers to Winnemucca from all over the Western United States for what many have called the weekend’s stand-out event. The strict quality controls make a difference for sellers. Last year, the high selling horses sold for $10,000 each.

Competitors have a great time over the course of the five-day weekend, but organizers say spectators will have a blast, too, catching some of the great competitions, shopping the Western Trade Show and enjoying the great food and drink from the concession area.

ADMISSION 

$10 adults, $5 kids (5–12).
All tickets available at the gate.
Free admission to Wednesday — Friday events and the Ranch, Rope and Performance Horse Sale on Saturday evening.
