Can you believe it!

Did you know that the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic™ pays out more money than the women’s barrel race at RODEO HOUSTON!!!

Yep, it sure does. Last year, we awarded $369,427 in cold, hard cash, while the function in Reliant Stadium awarded $200,000.

Joking aside, RODEO HOUSTON is the richest professional rodeo outside of the Wrangler National Finals in Las Vegas, and we love having the rodeo gals stop by and play in our sand box (arena) too!

With the addition of a $225,000 slot race, the 2014 event should blow 2013 out of the water!

When we announced this past May that we’d pay $100,000 to the winner of a slot race open to 4- and 5-year-olds, it filled in a matter of HOURS! Poor LaTricia Duke—if she wanted something to keep her occupied on the drive to the Old Fort Days Futurity in Fort Smith, Ark., she got it!

Never in our wildest dreams did we believe this event would grow so fast in such a short time span. We have something for everyone—open races for competitors of all ages and abilities, aged events to test the mettle of our youngest horses, and a sweepstakes, which is a good old, fashioned bring-your-big-gun shootout between the best horses and riders at the peak of the careers.

Plus it’s an event to see and be seen. Shop, party and play—AND benefit a worthy cause while doing it.

All proceeds from the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic benefit K9s4COPs. Where else can you have a good time, win big checks and possibly save a life?
