Three things to watch for at the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation Professional Rodeo

Foley Horse Arena set to host 24th annual event this weekend, Aug. 4-6

The 24th Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation Professional Rodeo will have many facets that have remained the same from the start as well as some additions for this year.

The Foley Horse Arena will host the rodeo this weekend, Aug. 4-6, where the gates open at 5:30 p.m. nightly. If you’re heading to see the cowboys and cowgirls in action, here are three things to watch out for.

Peer Helpers

The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation was established in 1998 to help provide programs, services, and resources that support the social and emotional well-being of local youth. That has led to 51 schools across Baldwin County developing a PeerHelper Program on their campus.

This year, Peer Helpers will be out and about Thursday morning for some final setup before the rodeo kicks off that night.

“We are so grateful for the community’s support of the rodeo each year,” said Frances Holk-Jones, President and Co-Founder of the foundation. “Families love to come each year knowing that not only are they going to have a great time, but they will also be making a difference in the lives of our local youth.”

Kid activities including a new mechanical bull

After the gates open at 5:30 p.m., free children's activities begin at 6 p.m. New this year, there will be a mechanical bull that rodeo-goers of all ages can try their hand at.

Rodeo athletes doing their thing

Athletes at the top of their craft will compete in events such as bull riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, breakaway roping and much more for top prizes. Stay tuned to see who takes home the win!
