About 7,000 people came to the Harford County Equestrian Center on Tollgate Road for the first professional rodeo in Harford County last Saturday afternoon.
More than 87 entrants from Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey participated in the Harford Rodeo, which was the first competition in the 1991 rodeo season.
Rodeo organizers said they were happy with the attendance. A second Harford Rodeo is planned for next year.
Proceeds from the rodeo will benefit the Harford County Farm Fair-4H-Equestrian Center building and maintenance fund. Organizers have not yet calculated the proceeds from this year's rodeo.
