Bill Pickett Rodeo 2019
The United Horsemen's Association is proud to be a Rodeo sponsor. We are honored to coordinate buses and sell group tickets for attendees. Tickets typically become available in late June. The Rodeo is usually a sold out show so be sure to advise us of your ticket needs as soon as you are able.
"The Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo celebrates and honor Black Cowboys and Cowgirls and their contributions to building the west. We highlight the irrefutable global appeal of Black Cowboys and Cowgirls in the West and the stories behind a sub-culture that is still strong today. BPIR also serves as a cultural event and opportunity for families to enjoy and embrace the cowboy culture, while being educated and entertained with reenactments, history highlights, and western adventure."
