Ranch & Cow Horse Races
12:30pm (T) (pending entries)
Superintendent: Nance Brandenburg
Sponsor: Steamboat Veterinary Hospital
It is said that horse racing at the Routt County Fair has always been an honorable and fun tradition for the County. The Ute Indians proceeded the fair’s beginnings, when they loved racing the horses on the flats near Steamboat Springs.
From the first Routt County Fair in 1914, horse racing has been an integral part of the festivities. In years long past, the local ranchers and horse breeders attended the fair to promote their own horses racing abilities and their breeding.
We are offering several races with different caliber of horses competing. Let’s see all of the “fast” and “not-so-fast” ranch horses and cow ponies come out and have fun running at the 2015 Routt County Fair. Entry fee: $20 Adult, $10 Youth, Peewee Free.
