Annual Horse Show

The Didsbury Light Horse Show started in 1963 and, since the first show, it has grown with more people attending in various types of classes and on all breeds of horses.


This is an Alberta Equestrian Federation approved competition.​​

Ranch Rodeo

Traditionally, ranch rodeos saw teams of cowboys and cowgirls (usually ranch hands) compete against teams from neighbouring ranches. Events were based on work they did everyday.


Today's ranch rodeo is very similar. Contestants are not professional cowboys, the events are still based on everyday ranch work, and the contestants continue to compete as teams.
