Cowboys, rodeo clowns, ropes and bulls filled the Kendall County Fairgrounds over the weekend as the Fox Valley Pro Rodeo returned for its fourth year.
Hosted by the Big Hat Rodeo Company, the annual event featured riders from nearby towns, and from across the country, who came to compete in a variety of categories, from team roping to barrel racing, and the perennial favorite: bull riding.
The rodeo also featured entertainment from the Pegasus Trick Riders, a group of young riders who performed tricks on horseback for the crowd, flipping and spinning in their saddles, even running alongside the horse at points. The riders engaged in “snowboarding,” where one rider stood on a board tied to a saddle, while a rider on horseback pulled them across the arena.
Horse tricks will return to the fairgrounds in August, when the Kendall County Fair takes place from Aug. 2 to Aug. 5.
