Don King Days are Here!!

Horse GallopingAre you ready for some good ole fashioned cowboy-style fun? Of course you are! 2014 will mark the 25th consecutive year of the beloved Don King Days in Sheridan Wyoming. Running strong since 1989, the event began when local ranchers decided to put together an organized event to appreciate the history and traditions of the area. It’s been one of the most highly anticipated events of Sheridan ever since.

Who was Don King? No, we’re not referring to the odd-haired gentleman who managed the boxer Mike Tyson. This is OUR Don King – the legendary cowboy, roper, saddle, craftsman, horse trainer, and much much more. Our Don King was a man of great repute and eventually added great husband and father to his stellar life’s work. Commendable to say the least. Exemplary to say the most.

The Five W’s

Well, since you’re already aware of the “what” and the “why”, here are the other three W’s. We’ll even throw in a “C” for good measure:

  • Who: YOU

  • Where: Big Horn Equestrian Center/Big Horn, Wyoming
