On Wed., July 18, a number of 2012 National High School Finals Rodeo competitors will take a break from their events to spend time with a very special group of youngsters. The Exceptional Kids Rodeo will be hosted at the Sweetwater Events Complex Indoor Arena starting at 4:30 p.m.\The free event gives the children a chance to experience rodeo excitement first-hand. Horseback riding and roping lessons are just the beginning. Bullfighters – the performers who keep the bull riding contestants safe – will also be on hand to interact with the children. Additionally, the rodeo queen contestants and the National High School Rodeo Association student officers will sign autographs and show the kids the rodeo ropes.
