Duke of the Chutes

State Fair Honors Southern Colorado Rodeo Hall of Famer With New Saddle Bronc Event

The Duke of the Chutes X Broncs event will join the Colorado State Fair lineup as a tribute to legendary stock contractor Harry Vold, known as the Duke of the Chutes, the founder of the Vold Rodeo Company in Avondale, Colorado. 

Vold, who passed away in 2017, was a top producer of rodeos and his company still works to provide livestock for rodeos in several states. The inaugural event is organized by Vold’s daughter Kirsten, who took over running the rodeo company.
