The Medicine Lodge Rodeo was started by Alma Anderson, who believed that being a cowboy was something of which to be proud. The Anderson family proudly carries on this belief and continue to strive to bring a truly western weekend to all contestants and spectators alike. This rodeo is also a great supporter of the next generation of cowboys and cowgirls — hosting junior barrel racing, stick horse racing, wild cow milking, miniature horse racing and other very exciting events.
