Reawakenings Veterans Benefit Rodeo

The Rockin J Reawakenings Veterans Benefit Rodeo is held over Labor Day Weekend at the Prewitt Rodeo Grounds, Prewitt, NM.  The "Prewitt Labor Day Rodeo" is an old tradition in this part of the state, once hailed as a "granddaddy of them all."  Through the years, it has seen more than a few big names throw their hat in the ring, as well as plenty of ambitious kids and rookies in the sport of rodeo.  Prewitt was always a place to go and have a good time.  In 2017, we were blessed with the opportunity to put on the rodeo after another company pulled out and it wasn't even going to happen.  It was a challenge, it pushed our limits, and it was a great show!  One of the best turn-outs in recent years, according to spectators.  We have many friends and contractors to thank for that success.  Once again, in 2018, we were again afforded the opportunity to put on the open show, as well as put on the kids rodeo.  It was a blast and a huge success, in spite of the weather.  Going into the future, we are very excited to help keep this tradition alive for our community, our youth and all those who are to come along.
