Facilities & Practice

The Cal Poly Rodeo Program is fortunate to have a complete practice facility and boarding amenities within walking distance of campus. All rodeo events are practiced multiple times per week to ensure competition preparedness and build team unity. During practice, live runs are made and recorded on video for later review. A program-owned feedlot and hillside pastures allow for access to calves, steers, goats and bucking stock for three months in the fall and five months in the spring. Boarding, practice and arena fees change from year to year and are required to board or practice on campus.
