COLORADO SPRINGS — Members of the Pikes Peak Range Rider Pivots have been practicing for the Lake Havasu Rodeo, which they will open at the end of the month.

13 local riders are heading to Lake Havasu and will open the rodeo on January 30 and 31.

The group is making the trip to help promote the Pikes Peak Region and the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo.

"The main reason we do it number one is for the sport of rodeo. We love the sport of rodeo, we love Colorado Springs. We love helping Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo open with excitement but it is also promoting western heritage and keeping western heritage alive in Colorado Springs, " Chairman Doug Smith said.

Most Range Rider Pivots are generational members and keeping the program alive is a family tradition.
