The Northwest College Rodeo Team practices at the Trapper Arena, located on Highway 14A between Powell and Cody. This is a complete horse-cattle facility with outdoor arenas, sheds, round pens, and a large parking area for horse trailers. These facilities are suitable for professional horse training, roping, cutting, reining, team penning, barrel racing, and dressage.
Northwest College Rodeo Team members enjoy the opportunity to practice in both indoor and outdoor facilities. The indoor arena is 120’ x 250’, heated and insulated with a roping chute, boxes, return alley, stripping chute, and nearby cattle pens. Also located in the indoor arena is roughstock training equipment, including a bucking machine and Barrel Bull. During the season, local contractors bring in broncs and bulls for “live” practices.
The outdoor arena is 150’ x 300’ and ideal for practicing events such as team roping, steer wrestling, and barrel racing.
