The Iron Cowgirl Competition tests strength, athleticism, courage, and skills as a horsewoman. Competitors pick from a series of events that would be found on the ranch or farm. The events are timed and point-driven. The competitor with the most points after all of her events will win the grand prize and be crowned the Iron Cowgirl!

Not an Iron Cowgirl? No problem! Come support the competitors and enjoy many other attractions as well, including the Barn Dance, Camping and more. There will be a chance for spectators to win great prizes too!

Somerset got some rain last night. The good news is the arena will be fine for the weekend! The arena still had its "hard cover" roll from the last event and is just getting worked up today. The hard cover drains pretty quick. Even when wet, this arena has great traction for the fast paced events. Jackpots start at 10 Friday morning. Livestock events start at 2 (goat tying and breakaway roping). Lots of time for exhibitions before each event. Poles 5:30. Barrels start at 6. $250 added first open. Looking forward to a great weekend! No limit for parking and camping. No memberships required. Gates are open tonight starting at 5 pm. ... See MoreSee Less
