This Sunday will be our 4th Annual Rascal Rodeo for Union, Oregon. This is a free event for anyone with special needs of ALL ages! The purpose of our events is to show the special needs community that they are loved, accepted and can do things many say they can not do.
To be a participant or volunteer you don’t need horse or rodeo experience. Just come have fun, something for everyone to do. Please register on our website to volunteer or participate. Sponsorship opportunities are available as well.
Not able to participate or volunteer? You can still help! Make a tax deductible donation HERE using PayPal or a check (you do not need a PayPal account to donate). You can also make Rascal Rodeo your “charitable organization” on Amazon by purchasing through AmazonSmile HERE. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Rascal Rodeo whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.
We hope you will join us and can help spread the word to your special needs and volunteer communities. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. Visit our event on Rascal Rodeo Facebook Page.

Additional info for volunteers and participants:
Volunteers should be there at 9am to help set up. Participants arrive as close to 10am as possible. We will be in the rodeo arena on the Eastern Oregon Livestock Show Grounds (760 E Delta St. Union, OR). Park along Fir Street, as that will be the closest to the entrance for the rodeo arena. Cross the race track near the Jockey Shack. Dress accordingly for current weather conditions. If you are bringing horses/ponies please have them ready by 9:30am and inside the arena.
Please have everyone in closed toed shoes (if possible). Participants and volunteers will receive an event T-shirt upon checking in. Parents/guardians must either come into the arena or stay in the grandstands but can NOT leave the area. Everyone will have to sign a release form prior to entering the arena. If the legal guardian will not be with them on Sunday, please email to request a release form to print, sign and bring with. Family and friends are encouraged to come and watch to cheer the participants on! We will accept volunteers and participants the day of.
