Days after the Houston Rodeo was canceled because of coronavirus concerns, officials are explaining how they are handling exhibitor fees and are announcing an online auction.
Here’s a breakdown:
• For the School Art and Lamb and Goat competitions that were held, exhibitors will be paid their guaranteed premiums which they earned.
• The rodeo will be refunding all entry fees for livestock and horse show exhibitors who were unable to compete.
• The Rodeo is working on a plan to further support junior exhibitors, including heifer exhibitors. As a part of this plan, they will be having an online auction in place of the planned junior auctions. Those details will be announced shortly.
There is a page where people can donate specifically to the junior exhibitors. Click here.
