Arena

Vauxhall Ag Society - Riding Arena

 

Following all COVID-19 Guidelines 

The objective of the Vauxhall Agricultural Society with regard to the rodeo arena

is to promote the use of the arena for western way of life activities.

 

We have done many renovations to our arena and we will provide a safe and functional facility for family recreational use.

Our first annual roping jackpot was hosted on June 1st, 2019 with 169 teams participating, this was a very successful event for our facility.  We also hosted our second annual Family Fun Rodeo on June 8th, 2019. This is a great event for the entire family to attend. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we were unable to host these events in 2020, but will plan to host these events in 2021!

We were fortunate to be able to host our first AHSRA event in September 2020.  This was a very successful event for our facility as well as the competitors of the AJHSRA & the AHSRA, as many events were unable to continue in 2020 due to COVID-19.  

We would like to congratulate some of our very talented local youth on their qualifications to the 2022 National High School Rodeo Finals which will be held in Gillette, Wy from July 15th - 25th.  Vane Ferguson is a 3 time National Qualifier and will be competing this year in the Steer Wrestling Event.  Austin Broderson is a 2 time qualifier and will be competing this year in the Bareback Riding.  Austin Broderson was also invited to the 2022 Novice Bareback Riding at the Calgary Stampede.  Vane Ferguson will also compete at the Canadian High School Finals in August 2022 in Swift Current, Sk in the Tie Down Roping and Steer Wrestling. As well as the Vegas Tuffest Event held in December 2022 at Las Vegas, NV in the Tie Down Roping.  We are very proud of both of these individuals and we would like to wish them both the best of luck in their upcoming events and we can't wait to see what the future holds for both of them!
