Should I bring my gun?
*NO. Please do not bring any firearms.

Where do I tie my horses up?
*Please plan to contain animals with a high line, electric fence, panels or tie to your trailer; don’t tie to trees and don’t leave hobbled horses loose.

What 'extras' should I bring?
*First, yourself and your fun having attitude!! If you and your animals are in shape it will make the trip a lot more fun. Remember rain is always a possibility and at 5000 ft. the nights can be very cool so come prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings. Sunscreen, hats, extra shoes/boots, extra halters and ropes, any medications for you or animals needed. Remember there is very little to NO cell service here. Plan ahead.

I can't make it, what should I do?
*We don’t offer refunds on any tickets as a general rule of the Pendleton Round-Up.
The Wagon Train event only, may offer an 80% refund until June 1st. After June 1st, it will be less costs for catered meals and credit card fees which will vary based on level of participation. All refund checks will be mailed 7-10 business days after the event is completed in its year.
