Last Sunday, The Lavaca Round-up Club was pleasantly surprised by what turned out to be the largest turn out in recent years to their first Shodeo of the year. Shodeo season will run through early September and with the number of folks who came out, this looks to be the best year yet. A shodeo is timed events of poles, barrels, stakes, flags, keyhole and speed that the entire family can can participate in. But more than that, the Shodeo is a fellowship and kinship for people with horses to get together and have a good time. It is an opportunity to hone their skills, tune their horses, and teach the younger generations the skills of horsemanship. There will be prizes for the point leaders at the end of the year, but it’s not really about the competition as much as its about promoting a way of life. There will always be great concessions with burgers, hot dogs, chili cheese dogs, pretzels, popcorn, nachos, chili Frito pie, candy, pickles, soft drinks, and really sweet tea! This will be fun for the whole family. If you have never been to the Shodeo in Lavaca, you owe it to yourself to pack up the family, and horses and come see what the fuss is all about. The next scheduled Shodeo will be April the 6th at 6pm.
