This is the 3rd Annual Rascal Rodeo for Lynden, WA once again sponsored by Coppinger Carter P.S. Attorneys at Law. Because of their sponsorship this event is free of charge to the special needs community.
The purpose of our events is to show the special needs community that they are loved, cared for, accepted and can do things many say they can not. No horse or rodeo experience required to be involved. Pre-registration is appreciated on our website, www.rascalrodeo.org, but not required, participants and volunteers can register when they arrive. (Liability Release forms for both Participants and Volunteers will need to be signed upon arrival.)
To be a participant or volunteer you don’t need horse or rodeo experience. Just come have fun, something for everyone to do. Please register on our website to volunteer or participate. Sponsorship opportunities are available as well.
