Bareback and Saddle Bronc Riding School is 3 days of intensive training and is designed for young men who want to gain experience and fine tune their riding techniques in bareback riding or saddle bronc riding. The minimum age to attend this school is 12 years old.
During this school, students will be taught proper safety and riding techniques in two different classes. Ages 12-14 will be in the mechanical class, and ages 15+ will be in the livestock class. This school is a great way for students to fine tune their riding techniques before rodeo season! Biblical teaching sessions with Ronnie Moyer will be held several times each day.

Chad Cross had been the Head Rodeo Coach at Fort Scott Community College since 1996 and has twice been awarded Coach of the Year in the Central Plains Region in addition to being the 2015 National NIRA Coach of the Year.
