Rodeo for Individuals with Special Needs

Tucker Day Rodeo at double diamond ranch, is a rodeo for individuals with special needs. They have the opportunity to show off their riding skills, barrel racing, pole bending, and other fun events. More than 50 individuals were given the opportunity to participate.

The Tucker Day Rodeo was inspired by Tucker Blaine who has down syndrome and participated in a horse competition. Tucker’s participation in that event made the audience cheer with happiness. His bravery and love for life inspired co-director Lee Ann Johnson’s husband to create the first annual Tucker Day Rodeo.

The joy that the rodeo brings to all the individuals participating is worth all the hard work. Due to amazing sponsors and successful fundraisers the event is free to all families and their children.
