Radiant Rodeo

The NILE’s Radiant Rodeo is for youth with special needs in the Yellowstone Valley Region. Radiant, by definition, is: emitting rays of light, shining bright; bright with joy, hope etc. This event’s goal is to light up the barn with radiating smiles.

Volunteers often talk about the speechlessness and goosebumps they experience. Watching a kid radiate the thrill of riding a horse for the first time, or holding hands with a rodeo queen is contagious. Radiant is also a term for energy. We want an inside-your-chest, warm-fuzzy, chokes-you-up kind of energy. The atmosphere shines brightly with all the flashing smiles and positive energy.

Several different stations are set at the sale ring in the Montana Pavilion at MetraPark. Kids and chaperones will be able to pick and choose which stations to participate in and how long to stay at each station. Rodeo queens, clowns, livestock exhibitors, ropers, and riders will welcome each person to the stations.

This event is free and open to any kids (age 18 and under) with any form of special need. Pre-register to receive a free ticket to the NILE rodeo.
