Extreme Rodeo

Location: Cultural Center

The Extreme Rodeo team presents the best cowboys and cowgirls on August 3, 4 and 5.

Rodéo du Québec Inc. team was founded in 1995 by Charles Tardif and is a growing family business now chaired by his son Joey Tardif.

The Rodeo circuit visits +/-14 cities every year during the summer season for more than 40 days of competition and is a great pride to present these rodeo shows.  

Rodéo du Québec cares about the quality of its organization, performing animals as well as cowboys and cowgirls. Through International Professional Rodeo Association, which sanctions over 300 rodeos in North America, it ensures spectators of high-level performances.

For many years now, Cowboys of Eastern Canada have named the Rodéo du Québec team as:

  • Best rodeo producer  
  • Best provider of animals
  • Horse of the year with or without saddle  
  • Bulls of the year
  • Best rodeo atmosphere
  • Best rodeo
  • In 2017, 5 horses of Rodéo du Québec team participated to the prestigious IPRA finale in Oklahoma City.

Rodéo du Québec team has at its heart the well-being and respect of its stock comprised of over 200 rodeo animals. Located on their lands in Thetford Mines, the herd is kept in a loose solar housing barn and outdoors. The amount of forage, grass and litter consumed annually is enormous to keep these athletes in good shape and condition. A regular visit of a veterinary doctor, blacksmith, cattle hoof trimmer and nutritionist are also required many times a year. Every animal is inspected before being loaded and taken to the rodeo. The majority of rodeo animals come from Western Canada, however Rodéo du Québec team has its own Texas Longhorn cattle, a hardy breed and recommended for timed trials.

An incredible show not to be missed at L’Expo de Saint-Hyacinthe
