MISS AMERICA, CARA MUND, WILL BE AT THE 2018 CHAMPIONS RIDE MATCH!
MAKE YOUR PLANS TODAY!
Guess what? It’s early but this might just be a good time make plans to attend the Home on the Range Champions Match Ride rodeo on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at 1 p.m. MST in Sentinel Butte, ND. That’s because it’s going to be kind of a big deal.
But, you say, you’re too busy to plan to attend an event that is that far down the road? Well, you can’t possibly be busier than Miss America, Cara Mund, and she’s going to be there. And that in itself is a big deal.
For you, this trip will be well worth it.
You see, when it comes to Cara Mund, it’s not just about returning to her home state. Because, let’s face it, she’s not the one that controls her travel schedule. The Miss America Organization does that.
And it’s not just about watching the top bronc riders in the world compete for the largest bronc-riding payout in professional rodeo in August, although that too is a big deal.
It’s really about disadvantaged kids, some of whom come from homes so broken that they’ve never received a birthday or Christmas present. Or they’ve found themselves going down roads towards some level of destruction.
Yep, this is all about raising funds for a ranch that helps create hope and redirects broken lives towards a new promising path. HOTR has been doing that for hundreds of kids over six or more decades, so they know exactly what they’re doing.
And Special Cowboy Moments, the television show that airs each week in primetime on Wednesdays and Sundays on RFD-TV, is bringing Miss America there to focus on that cause. And in the meantime, it will being documenting her southwestern North Dakota rodeo experience, to air soon thereafter.
So you see it’s all good stuff. The only questionable part is whether or not you’ll be part of it. But you can solve that problem right now by calling for tickets at (701) 872-3745. You’ll be glad you did.
It’s wild! It’s woolly It’s western! Home On The Range has been sponsoring this unique fundraiser for over 60 years and it is going strong! The Saddle Bronc Match is a premiere event that features thirty of the top professional cowboys mounted on some of pro rodeo’s toughest stock from contractors in the United States and Canada. It is truly entertainment at its finest, and many have ranked it right up there with a performance of the saddle bronc riding at the National Finals Rodeo! In fact, every world champion saddle bronc rider except one has ridden at Champions Ride. The Saddle Bronc Match is now sanctioned by PRCA.
Annually, on the first Saturday in August, spectators gather in the natural amphitheater to watch “champions ride” to benefit the children who call the ranch home. The rustic arena is nestled on the grounds of HOTR in the serene beauty of western North Dakota. Fans are truly “up close and personal” with many of the rodeo personalities they follow on TV. Champion’s Ride gives them a great opportunity to get autographs and meet many of their cowboy heroes.
The Ranch and the Rodeo have grown up together and it would be nearly impossible to separate the two and the strong western heritage they share. In 2000, Champion’s Ride was honored with the prestigious Special Achievement Award from the ND Cowboy Hall of Fame and was inducted into its ranks – only the third such event to have been honored in this way.
The rodeo itself is truly a class act, but more importantly, it brings people to Home On The Range, to see the working ranch dedicated to helping homeless, troubled and neglected children. The children themselves are on-hand to give tours and share the colorful history of the facility.
Champion’s Ride is an affordable quality entertainment event for all ages. All proceeds from the event go to support the children that call Home On The Range home.
Join us for the 62nd Champion’s Ride Match on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at 1:00pm!
