I'm making a business trip to Dallas 15-22 July. Can anyone
advise on near-by horsey events e.g. genuine rodeo -
dates/time and locations (with some directions if poss.) ?
Thanks.....MIKE

Well, there's always Mesquite Rodeo every Friday, Saturday and I think Sunday
nights.  That's out in Mesquite (East of Dallas proper).  Then there's the
Fort Worth Stockyards Rodeo that I think is every weekend as well.  I don't
have any specifics at the moment, but I'll look up some more and let you know
what I find out.  What other types of events would you be interested in?

I highly recommend the Mesquite Championship Rodeo which has
relatively new facilities.  The indoor sports arena is dedicated
totally to rodeo and is probably one of the nicest rodeo facilities in
the country...if not the best.  The arena is at I-635 and Military
Parkway which is appox. 30 minutes southeast of downtown Dallas.  You
can't really miss it because the arena sits alone high on a hill (well,
high by Dallas standards).

The rodeo runs from April to Sept.  They put on an entertaining show.  
If you are a rodeo diehard, you can stay after the show and watch the
completion of the events.  The number is 214-285-8777.

They also have a petting zoo and pony rides, if your interested. :-)

Ok Mike lets see what in the schedule for Texas in July !

The PRCA short listing shows you have 4 choices. They are:

        Jacksonville, TX        July 12-15
        Coleman, TX             July 13-15
        Mesquite, TX            July 14-15
        Mesquite, TX            July 21-22

I don't have contact or ticket information for these rodeos but I
suspect we can find out how to get them after you decide which one
you plan to attend.
