Rodeo coming back to Foley this week

In 2008, the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation Professional Rodeo was voted as “Favorite Rodeo” of the year by the Professional Cowboy Association. Event organizer Lindsay Schumacher said she hopes the 2009 rodeo, coming up later this week, will be another success.

Three-hundred professional cowboys and cowgirls from across the country will compete in events such as bull riding, barrel racing, calf roping and steer wrestling at the event, which is sponsored by the South Baldwin Regional Medical Center, Shumacher said. The rodeo will be held at 8 p.m. nightly Thursday through Saturday at the City of Foley Horse Arena.
