- Giddy-up Rodeo – The Calgary Stampede Queens’ Alumni committee is pleased to offer four unique annual events for the special needs community and their families. Giddy-Up Rodeo is the committee’s third event of the year, happening this September. During this event special needs children can participate in an interactive “rodeo.” Each participant spends the morning exploring various rodeo events including chuckwagon races, roping and horseback rides. The bull riding consists of cowboys carefully rocking a teeter-totter bull for an eight second ride, the chuckwagon races feature special small wagons for participants to ride in, happily pulled by volunteers, steer roping provides the opportunity for guests to sit on wooden barrels and rope a wooden steer with the help of a cowboy instructor, and assisted horse riding is available on quiet, specially selected horses. Friendly animals are also around to be pet and brushed by the guests. If this sounds like an event a special needs child in your life would enjoy, email Queensalumni@calgarystampede.com.
