History of the Rodeo
This long-running and oldest continuous weekly family-entertaining rodeo was started in 1953 by Don “Wild Horse” Baxter. Shawn Graham is the current owner and operator of this Lake Luzerne Rodeo. He purchased it in 2001, improved the grounds, covered the grandstands, and had to rebuild the Longhorn Saloon when it was completley lost in a fire. The Painted Pony now even has a traveling road show up and down the east coast.
