Late Registrations will be accepted for all events. The late fee will be $50.00 and applies to contestants who have been assigned a four(4) digit IGRA number greater than 30 days from the registration date.  

The DSRA will charge a $25.00 late fee, per horse stall, to contestants who did not reserve the adequate number of horse stalls on their entry form or who did not pre-register for the rodeo.


The arena is smaller than required size (100’ x 175’). 

We will have 2 working, bucking chutes (instead of 3 chutes).


A veterinarian will be on-call April 23-24 and on the grounds April 25-26 for rodeo performances. Our farriers will be on-call for the rodeo weekend.

  • What's coming up and dang its hot!

    Hey there Blog readers,,,The heat has gotten us all.  We raised almost $800.00 supporting the concession stand for the Midstate Horse Shows at Lorance on two of the hottest, sweatiest weekends possible...I think.  Its not over yet...  Put up a new pool for DSRA to cool off and it has maintained a 92 and up temperature so I just have a huge ugly pond in back yard...but our time will come.
