Join us for a very special Rodeo Military Night where we honor past and present Armed Forces. Help us show our appreciation and make sure to wear your Red, White & Blue

Throughout the history of this nation, no matter what we’ve faced as a country, we’ve always had brave men and women willing to step to the plate, literally spill their blood, so that we might live in the greatest, freest nation in the world.

When it comes to rodeo, spectators don’t just come out to see the cowboys. The stock they ride are sometimes as famous as their counterparts-if not more.
Honeycutt Rodeo Stock Contractors know what they are doing, celebrating 5 generations and 8 decades in Professional Rodeo, they will once again be providing thrills and spills to the Ute Mountain Roundup Rodeo in the form of top steers, calves, bulls and bucking horses.
