It’s the Wild West in Aiken! The Great Cowboy Horsemanship Show & Cookout

November 4, 2023
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Starting at NOON join us for a finger-licking good BBQ buffet lunch—then sit back and enjoy the show with Cowboy Horsemanship know-how and riding demos! There’s a reason those cowboys and their horses can make reining, roping and riding wild mustangs look so easy. It’s called Horsemanship, Trust and Training!

Learn firsthand from the tried-and-true best riders around:
Reiner Chuck Swain, tells you what it takes to ride, slide, spin and stop
on a dime —
Roper Dave Rosier on timing, teamwork and throwing a lasso from
your galloping horse.
Betty Alexander demos riding Western sidesaddle and explains its eye-
opening history…
Rob West, trains wild mustangs – to compete in the Mustang
Makeover Challenge –14 so far–and he’ll show you how he truly speaks
And don’t forget to buy your raffle tickets to win one-on-one training
sessions and quick getaways for you and your posse.
When the Wild West comes to AIKEN—don’t miss it!!
