4th Grade Hits The Trail

Kari Sharp

August 29, 2018

Eighteen Silver Lake fourth graders had the opportunity to attend a field trip to a special kid’s day sponsored by the Oregon Trail Rodeo on Friday, August 24, 2018. Our Silver Lake students got to meet this year’s Miss Rodeo Nebraska and Miss Oregon Trail Rodeo.  The rodeo queens shared with the students how they got their start in rodeo and what it takes to b a rodeo queen.  They also learned about the history of Nebraska and how rodeo got its start from Ron Meyer, a native to the Roseland area.   Mr. Meyer showed them a real buffalo hide and shared some of his artwork with them.  The students then traveled from station to station learning about rodeo, the rodeo animals and how well they are cared for and even got to meet the rodeo clown.


The rodeo clown is always a hit with the fourth graders!  The students even got the chance to watch come calf roping, steer wrestling, and learn about barrel racing.   The students were impressed with the livestock and even got to see some colts that came along with their mamas as they performed as buckin’ broncos in the rodeo.   All the fourth graders had a great time!
