Nemiah Valley Rodeo

NEMIAH VALLEY RODEO

The highlight of the annual two-day Nemiah Valley Rodeo held the first weekend in August is the Mountain Race. Lasting less than two minutes, the event puts both rider and steed at tremendous risk as they hurdle down a local mountainside to the finish line. The fastest and strongest horses in the race are wild specimens that have survived predatory wolf packs and the ravages of bone numbing winters.
