The Silver Spurs Special Rodeo
Decades ago, a touching story of love and inclusion began with Fran McLaughlin, a Silver Spurs member inspired by her special needs child's joy. She created the "Special Rodeo," envisioning a world where all kids, regardless of needs, could experience the rodeo's excitement. For 20 years, the Special Rodeo thrived until a brief hiatus during the arena's reconstruction. Today, Silver Spurs members Bridget Coggins and Sara Belinksy ensure its legacy. This February tradition welcomes special needs children and their families, featuring rodeo-themed games and activities, personalized rodeo buddies, and an array of cowboy adventures. The day ends with cheers and trophies, celebrating courage, spirit, and love.
