Humane treatment of animals and sportsmanship are two of the sports highest priorities. Unnecessary roughness on a steer results in instant disqualification. Unsportsmanlike conduct results in an immediate $500 fine. The Cimarron Corral reinforces that stance by levying fines of $1 per cuss word uttered. In two afternoons at the event this reporter did not hear one swear word. Sportsmanship and smiles were the order of the weekend.
Asked why riders enjoy coming to the Cimarron Arena, Larry Kuyper looked eastward to Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains and said, Many of our events are indoors. You dont have the wind in your face and this beautiful view. This is what its all about.
