The Calgary Stampede is excited to once again be hosting an Aggie Days Extreme Cowboy Race. The Extreme Cowboy Race, founded by famed horseman Craig Cameron, is a multi-faceted equestrian sporting event that showcases both horse and rider as they maneuver through a series of obstacles demonstrating both their amazing horsemanship skills and incredible speed.
This race is an ideal opportunity for our guests to experience the Extreme Cowboy style of racing by being a part of a large and loudly appreciative Aggie Days crowd in the Nutrien Western Event Center. The obstacle course that our competitors will face will include some of the epic "Cowboy Up " obstacles that are used in our world-famous Cowboy Up Challenge Stampede-time event in July. On top of all that, for those cowboys and cowgirls who aspire to compete with the world's best, this spring race provides an opportunity to show off their very best horse and rider moves in the hopes of being considered in future years as an invitee for the famous Calgary Stampede's Cowboy Up Challenge.
*Entries for the Spring Race are limited and will be capped at 25. Entries may close sooner than April 5, at the discretion of the entries department, and a waitlist may be created if required.
If more than 25 entries are submitted, a selection panel will review submitted entries for both skill level and date of entry which may be used to select the successful competitors. Early entry is encouraged.
Entries are now closed.
