The Kids Wild Pony Race is a Ponoka Stampede "spectators favorite". This wild, exciting, and often-humorous event features future rodeo stars aged 8-12. The kids try to tame a wild pony long enough to get a rider from their 3-person team aboard for a two jump ride. This is a timed event so it is the goal of the team to get the rider on the pony as quickly as possible. Don't miss the Kids Wild Pony Race, these cowboys and cowgirls in the making will be sure to have you on the edge of your seat.
