The Cactus Cowboy Corral, located in Tucson, Arizona, is dedicated to keeping the tradition of Western Trick Roping alive while presenting a more romantic image of the old West. Associated with the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys, Wild West Arts Club, Western Music Association and Adopt-a-Saguaro Program, the Cactus Cowboy Corral provides area youth with a wholesome activity while preserving the heritage of the West.
Our trick ropers, or Lariateers, have performed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Old Tucson Studios, and had the honor of accompanying Rex Allen during his last public appearance for the Adopt-a-Saguaro campaign and have participated in several Rex Allen Day Parades in Wilcox, Az.
The Corral has also traveled to Claremore, Oklahoma; the home/memorial of Will Rogers; to Oklahoma City and the Cowboy Hall of Fame; Ruidoso, New Mexico to the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium, as well as the Billy the Kid Days parade and pageant in Old Lincoln, New Mexico.
Some of our bigger trips have included the National Cowboy Symposium in Lubbock, Texas, the Annual International Wild West Arts Club (WWAC) Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada & the British Columbia Cowboy Heritage Society's Cowboy Heritage Festival in Kamloops, British Columbia.
Our most rewarding performances are when we go to various elementary and middle schools to share what we know and conduct some "hands on training". Our Lariateers range in age from 8 to 18, and yes, we do have some lady ropers to provide that additional challenge to our young ladies and gentlemen.
