From little keiki on up, ropers and riders throughout Hawaii compete in numerous events every year. This years 17th annual Koloa Plantation Days Rodeo will feature bull riding, double mugging, team roping, open barrel racing, rescue race, women’s breakaway roping, steer un-decorating the iron horse race and the Hawaiian classic po’o wai u, an event simulating wild cattle catching from the old paniolo days. The young keiki cowboys and cowgirls will get into the action with mutton busting (sheep riding) Keiki barrel racing, jr. Steer riding and Keiki team roping. Contestants range from age 2-88 years young and travel from Maui, Molokai, Oahu, the Big Island and some as far away as the mainland.
