Equestrian and Rodeo

Rapid City Equestrian & Rodeo

Not far from the city limits, you’ll find dozens of real western ranches and plenty of cowboys. No wonder Rapid City is an official sponsor of the Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo®, Central States Fair and Sutton Rodeo. Besides professional rodeo, you also find venues that can host horse shows and competitions. So come kick up your heels in Rapid City.
