Ben Anderson, one of Neal’s best friends, is leading Scooter, Neal’s horse at the beginning of the rodeo.

For the 4th year, the Neal Hermanson Memorial Ranch Rodeo and ranch horse competition will once again run as part of the Town and Country Festival held each June in Sidney. The ranch horse competition and rodeo this year will take place at the Richland County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 23, with tickets costing $5 each, children under 6 free.

The ranch horse competition begins at 9 am on Saturday. There will be a junior horse division for horses 5 years and under and a senior horse division with horses 6 years of age and older. Top winner will receive a handmade saddle made by Trent Taylor. Organizers will also add $1000 in each division.

The event also features a junior youth division with riders 13 and under and a senior youth division for riders 14-18. Kids also will be able to enjoy a stick horse race.

The Neil Hermanson Memorial Ranch Rodeo and Calcutta begins at 2 p.m. on Saturday, the 23rd. The winning team qualifies for the NILE held in Billings, MT.

Two thousand dollars in scholarship money will be awarded.

Last year 100% of the profits went to the Empty Saddle Memorial Foundation. The Foundation in turn gave out nine scholarships over the course of the year to kids in Sidney, Savage, Minot, Watford City, and Alexander.
