The Woodlake Lions Rodeo began the High-Five Rodeo” program in 2019, to give developmentally-disabled individuals an opportunity to participate in modified versions of rodeo events and learn some of the every day skills of the cowboy life.

“Participants are paired up with real-life cowboys and cowgirls, Miss Woodlake Lions Rodeo, bullfighters, and other performers and key personnel involved in the production of our rodeo, as they go through rodeo-related stations in the rodeo arena,” explained William Valero, past Woodlake Lions Club President.

“High-Five Rodeo” participants compete in a stick-horse barrel race, learn how to rope a dummy steer head, ride a horse, enjoy petting some livestock, and learn some of the rules of rodeo. 

The 2024 High-Five Rodeo will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 10, 2024. 


Registration is now full for the 2024 event, but if you are part of an organization or educational program serving developmentally-disabled individuals, or are a parent/guardian or conservator of a developmentally-disabled individual, please check back in February for 2025 event registration.
