The first weekend of the Dixie-6 was completed this last weekend in Hurricane. Milford rodeo club hosted Friday’s rodeo and Blue Mountain was Saturday’s host at the Washington County Equestrian Complex.

The reining cow competition is only once per weekend and three Emery Team members, Riata and Korby Chritiansen as well as Drake Weber, were seventh, eighth and 10th, respectively. Jessica Fox won the breakaway roping on Friday and placed ninth with partner Riata Christiansen in team roping. Riata also was 10th in the goat tying event.
On Saturday, Spartans Will and Wyatt Magnuson were third in team roping and Caleb Rubio scored on his bull, placing third. Shaylee Gilbert was 10th in the breakaway roping.
The rodeo club members will all be participating two additional weekends as they wrap up the Dixie-6.
