As the Five State Fair kicks off Friday evening, a special show will be presented between the kids and adults ranch rodeos. The fair board is pleased to announce the Rawhide and Dusty Show moves into the rodeo arena at the fairgrounds at 6:30 p.m.

The Rawhide and Dusty Show is billed as “extreme rodeo entertainment.”

“We leave the crowd on the edge of their seats by performing trick roping, bullwhip artistry and daring acts on horseback,” Rawhide said.

Rawhide performs target work with the bullwhip, both on and off of horseback and also demonstrates many different types of whip popping, all using a 10-foot bullwhip. He also spends time before the event, meeting and greeting the crowd and performing trick roping.

Rawhide has been working with Dusty for many years. He began training Dusty when the horse was only 6 months old.

Now Dusty loves entertaining the crowd. He will shake his head “yes,” take a bow, lie down and will also rear up on his hind legs; all to the amazement of the crowd.

After this entertainment, Rawhide and Dusty will lope around the arena, performing different whip popping techniques.

While on horseback, Rawhide will jump Dusty onto the back of the truck, and then jump him onto the top of the trailer. Once on top of the trailer, Dusty will perform on a teeter-totter.

While Dusty is on top of the trailer, Rawhide stands up on the saddle and cracks his whip.

When the show culminates, Rawhide and Dusty ride out of the arena on top of the trailer.
