Painted Pony Championship Rodeo in Lake Luzurne provides fun for the whole family.
Western Rodeo Near Lake George
As the sun begins to set behind the Adirondack Mountains, that's when things heat up at the Painted Pony Rodeo. Your evening begins at 6:00 P.M. with the Painted Pony's world famous Texas Style BBQ. You will enjoy generous portions of top-quality chicken slowly smoked on the premises since early morning for the best tasting meat in the North Country. But y'all know a cowboy can't live on meat alone. Your chicken is accompanied by baked potato, corn on the cob, coleslaw, caeser salad, and a dinner roll — all the fixin's for a genuine Texas Style BBQ feast. Your meal is topped off with our homemade dessert.
After the BBQ, mosey on over to the oldest continuous weekly rodeo started in 1953 by Don "Wild Horse" Baxter. In the rodeo arena, capture the excitement of bareback, saddle bronc, and bull riding. Hold on to your cowboy hats during the team roping, calf roping, and steer wrestling, and as the ladies race against the clock in the barrel racing contest
Cheer on these professional cowboys from throughout the country as they compete for nightly cash prizes and a chance at the year-end trophy buckle. As the dust begins to settle in the rodeo arena, follow the sounds of the hottest country music as it flows out between the swinging doors of the Longhorn Saloon. Here you can kick up your heels all night long, or belly-up to the bar and enjoy a drink and discover just how wild the west can be. We're open till the wee hours of the morning.
