24th Bruce Wolf Stick Horse Stampede
Giddy Up! and join the free Stick Horse Stampede for toddlers up to 12 years old, and parents stick around for the senior stampede! Registration begins at 9am and the Stampede is promptly at 10am. Judged by our own Littleton Mayor and WWW Grand Marshal(s). There are ribbons for winners and participation ribbons for all participants. Bring your own stick horse or purchase one at the event for $5 or $10 from Jane’s Posse at Wolf Stables.
Western Welcome Week is honored to have the residents of RiverPointe Senior Living partner with Jane’s Posse, a Western Welcome Week committee that creates stick horses for the Bruce Wolf Stick Horse Stampede. We are always accepting donations of fabric, yarn, ribbon, and stuffing for the creation of the stick horses. WWW is a 501c3 public charity.
Wonderful article by the Littleton Independent: “Sticks and stuffing can build bonds” about Jane’s Posse and RiverPointe Senior Living.
The Bruce Wolf Stick Horse Stampede is a memorial event honoring long-time friend and supporter of WesternWelcome Week, Bruce F. Wolf. Bruce created the “Mayor’s Cup Stick Horse Class” in 1995 as part of the Western Welcome Week Horse & Pony Show to give the kids who came to the show an opportunity to participate. The event was renamed to the Bruce Wolf Stick Horse Stampede in 2008. The event is enjoyed by young and young at heart just as Bruce would have wanted.
