The 2016 Utopia Ranch Rodeo paid out $24,000 to the hard working Cowboys. The Corona Boys, Taos Muncy, Cody Taton, Travis Sheets, and Olin Borg swept the rodeo this year winning all 4 events and the average. The team took home $11,000 and beautiful Trophy Buckles.
It was a hard fought battle and tight race between returning champs Young Ranch led by Jerry Williams winning Reserve Champs, third place team RafterJ and CbarB, and fourth place team Addison Ranch. All of the teams showed heart and grit and kept the crowd on the edge of their seats. After the action the crowd danced to Cactus Country Band under the stars and Oak trees. Concessions provided by Bear's Market of Leakey and Big Ern's BBQ were wonderful.
