Event Testimonials


Bill and I have attended many great western events from the Buckaroo Ball to big rodeo events, Cheyenne Frontier Days, NFR, Stagecoach etc.

Your Palm springs event was the most High End, all-inclusive Western Experience of all.
You had something for everyone!  I think you have the perfect location at the perfect time of year, the ease in which a visitor could simply stay at the hotel and enjoy it all was amazing!

The fashion show was great - Michael and Sharon Guli did an excellent job. It was exciting for it to be part of Fashion week El Paseo.
Bill and I thank you for including us in so many of the special events.

I will wear my Western Design Expo judge's belt buckle proudly!!

This was the best first-year event I have seen in over 50 years of producing rodeos. This Palm Springs event is a sleeping giant."

"The Palm Springs rodeo is set up with the potential of being one of the premier rodeos in California."
Ken Behling
Crew Chief, PRCA

"I think this is the best thing that has happened to Palm Springs! Rodeos are American as apple pie, baseball and Chevrolet. Somewhere, Frank Bogert is smiling."
Jackie Autry
"All signs point to this being a great success. I heard over and over how much everyone loved it and as I was flying by in one of our drill performances, I saw Jackie Autry in the VIP tent."

"You did a wonderful job. It was a really nice weekend. It was a pleasure to work with Cotton again and see old friends and make new ones. It is our pleasure to donate our horse, time and family in memory of the late, great Frank Bogert."
Moe Gutierrez

"THANK YOU for doing such a great job putting on the Palm Springs Wild WestFest/Frank Bogert Memorial Rodeo. He would have been so proud of that event. We felt it was well planned and the events were great. Thanks for making the vendors/food court and the other areas free to the public, that was a great thing to do."  Great job done by all, Thanks again.

"I know how many hours, days, months went into making this a successful rodeo, and indeed it was!! My band and I had a great time playing the Cowboy Ball on Friday night and I can't tell you what an honor it was to sing the National Anthem on Sunday. I am proud to live in the desert. I can't wait for next year's rodeo!! Thanks everyone!!!"
