Register for rodeo camps

Doug Milholland

Rodeo Bible Camp ministries are accepting a few more entries for the June 6-9 event to be held in the Kier Ranch in Eckert. Several division entries are still open and may be registered at the website: or by calling Shane Kier at 970-216-7455 or Andrew Bowman at 275-9238 for availabilities.

The same contacts are for two other events in the series: Pony Camp for children 7 and under June 21-23 and Horse Training Camp for those 8-18 on July 11-14. The latter features renown horse trainer Doug Milholland, who is a National Reining Horse Hall of Fame inductee and winner of the National Reining Horse Futurity. Milholland has traveled from Oklahoma to assist at the camps a number of years and was raised in Grand Junction.

Pastor Kier and his wife Amanda have been hosting the Rodeo Bible Camp for 20 years. The ministry has expanded to those for horse training and ponies more recently. Classes are taught by rodeo pros, professional horse trainers and volunteers followed by Bible teachings. Later in the summer the group will hold a rodeo camp at the Apache Reservation in Arizona.

The fee is $175 for three days for the rodeo or horse training camp and $50 for pony camp. Scholarships are available.
