In 2015 our weekly ropings averaged 300-350 teams. We host ropers from 12- to 80-years-old and welcome competitors from all across the country and Canada. There's something for everyone at Dynamite Arena. We award numerous buckles, saddles and other great prizes throughout our winter season. In 2016 we will offer 70 events — a significant increase over the 49 events we produced in 2015. See our events page for details. We run anywhere from 400-500 head of our own Corriente cattle for the 21,000 teams that will back into the box at Dynamite Arena each season. We do offer a limited number of stalls and hook-ups. Please call for details.
"I didn't have an arena growing up so Dynamite was where I learned to rope. Ironically, that's also where I cut my thumb off. I have so many great memories from that arena. If it's what he wants to do, I hope my son, Ryker, learns to compete there too."

"The new owners of Dynamite have done such a wonderful job! They are enthusiastic, professional and care about what their supporters want from their ropings. I personally appreciate the sorting of the cattle and the fun holiday ropings they offer. Plus, it's only 15 minutes from home!"

"I remember going to Jim's (Jim Riley-founder of Dynamite Arena) in the early '80s. I was in my early 20's then and it was the place to be."
