9th Annual Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo

Hedrick Rodeo employees work to keep an excited bucking horse in his chute during the first night of last weekend's Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fairgrounds. "He was just excited and raring to go," explained owner Danny Hedrick about the six-year-old horse. The horse, later dubbed "High Chaparal," was taken out of the rotation that night, but was bucked after the show as a precaution.
From the first circling of the arena by Miss Rodeo USA with Old Glory waving in the breeze to the last bull ride, the ninth annual Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo was terrific. The words “great rodeo” were heard over and over! The weather forecasters had difficulty firming up a consistent forecast, but dry skies and warm temperatures prevailed, even as a storm passed by to the west.
