The fourth-annual 'Hell-on-Hooves' rodeo and team roping event will be held Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Lovelock rodeo grounds on Airport Road.
The extravaganza features the only stop in Nevada for the Rocking-M Rodeo 2014 'Bucking the West Tour' and will also include the annual family 'Jackpot Team Roping' event. Sign-ups will begin at 12 p.m. for the team roping and costs $30 for three roping tries. Entries for the wiener dog races will commence at 6 p.m. The top 5 dog-racing finishers will compete during a break in the rodeo which begins at 7 p.m.
Additionally, there will be an appearance by Charlie 'Too-Tall' West, who at 4-feet, 6-inches, is known as the world's smallest barrel man and pro rodeo clown. Event organizer Dewayne Colbeth said the public is invited to take pictures and get autographs free of charge from West.
Admission to the event is $5 (children under 12 are free). For further information, contact Colbeth at (775) 622-5817.
