With fantastic rodeo action happening across the country, CLN is proud to give you the who, what, when, and where about all things rodeo. This CLN Rodeo Recap will take you through the highlights of the 2019 rodeo extravaganza, Roots N’ Boots!
Since 2011, the Roots N’ Boots Rodeo has brought the best-of-the-best rodeo entertainment to Queen Creek, Arizona. The 2019 Roots N’ Boots Rodeo was no different. This past March, Roots N’ Boots celebrated not one, but THREE completely sold out rodeo performances. With the bleachers filled to the brim, the community came out in full force to celebrate their favorite home-grown rodeo event.
The competition was top-notch as rodeo athletes brought their A-Game to the Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre where they faced top-of-the-line stock from the Salt River Rodeo Company.

While the rodeo boasted three days of completely sold-out success, Roots N’ Boots was sure to let the community know it is so much “More than a Rodeo!”
Roots N’ Boots is proud of another successful year of community involvement. From the highly anticipated Special Kid’s Rodeo to the Xtreme Teen Rodeo, to the carnival and various expos, Horseshoe Park and Equestrian center were packed with excited rodeo fans.
