Arrive early when you visit so you can meet our four-legged stars of the show in their stalls! Before the action begins, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in our Horse Walk and say hello to our 32 magnificent horses. Not only will you get to learn more about them, but you can even take a souvenir photo with them!

Join the Stampede

Are you visiting with your family this summer? Don’t miss the opportunity to Join the Stampede! This unique opportunity gives visitors the chance to transform into one of our Stampede performers. It includes facial makeup and various accessories and is a popular pre-show activity for kids. They’ll love looking and feeling like the performers they see in our arena. Our Join the Stampede experience is available for all ages for an additional fee — that means parents can get involved too. Make it a family affair this summer at the Stampede!
