The Silver Spurs Riding Club, celebrating 80-years in 2022, is the largest rodeo east of the Mississippi River. It is the culmination of the work done by the Silver Spurs Riding Club, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization started in 1941 by Osceola County ranchers who began the rodeo in 1944, selling war bonds as admission to raise funds for our military.
