Western, English, Hunter and Jumper Horse Show
2020 Date to be Determined
Join us for a family friendly event and fund raiser for CAA programs. The 2019 show was held at Sidney Peak Ranch in Steamboat Springs with over 30 riders. Our sincere thanks to Sidney Peak Ranch for their ongoing support and time in making this event a success! Spectators are welcome, come, watch and join the fun!
CAA continues to work to create connections in our community. Building understanding and meaningful connections between cyclists and agriculture is an important goal. CAA remains focused on increasing appreciation for diverse groups and building a strong sense of community. CAA is proud to have a long standing relationship with Moots Cycles and new in 2019 the Steamboat Gravel bike race. During both of these events, CAA works to provide communication with land owners along the bike routes and provide education about the critical importance of agriculture with the cyclists.
Saturday, June 27, 2020 It’s time to Rally! Back for its SEVENTH year, we are gearing up for the Moots-Colorado Ranch Rally 2020. Limited to 200 riders we are planing for a great day of riding and raising money for CAA and local agriculture. This fundraiser ride is an amazing way to see the roads less traveled around Steamboat, meet some new friends and challenge yourself along the way. Where the pavement ends and the fun begins. Just 5 miles of the route are on pavement, the other 45 miles feature rural dirt and gravel roads that connect area historical ranches and farms. Enjoy a stunning day on the bike on the very roads Moots professionals test and develop their bikes on.
The event starts and finishes at Moots World Headquarters. This is a non-timed, non-competitive ride. You can ride at your own pace or that of the group around you. There are no awards other than seeing the amazing countryside around Routt County, meeting some great people along the way and our raffle at the evening social.
All proceeds from the event will go to CAA.
**NO REFUNDS ONCE REGISTERED** **We ride RAIN OR SHINE**
Sunday, August 16 2020 In it’s second year, SBT GRVL is a world-class gravel race experience held on the greatest gravel roads on Earth in and around the magnificent Steamboat Springs. The unique combination of the quiet roads surrounding a thriving resort town create a setting for an incredible gravel bike race. With the fundamental goal of inclusiveness, we want to focus not only on the race, but a fantastic weekend away with family and friends. The beauty of the mountains (not to mention the camaraderie with fellow cyclists) as well as the basic challenge of covering these gravel roads on two wheels is something that will not soon be forgotten.
CAA is proud to be one of the three local nonprofit organizations chosen to receive a portion of the race proceeds. Funds are used to help support programs in the Yampa Valley that directly impact local agriculture.
The 2020 SBT GRVL registration is sold out!

AG APPRECIATION WEEK
Join us for Ag Appreciation Week – March 21 – 28, 2020
Ag Appreciation Week (including National Ag Day) is a time to recognize and celebrate the importance of agriculture. Agriculture provides most everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis. National and local efforts educate millions of consumers and ask “Where would YOU be without agriculture? Naked and Hungry!” Since 2013 Ag Week has become CAA’s largest fund raising effort. Area businesses, individuals and organizations sponsor our efforts with annual membership contributions and sponsorships. Please consider joining us and support local ag!
Ag Week started locally with a desire to acknowledge National Ag Day, but has since turned into a week long celebration of all things agriculture in the Yampa Valley! It is also CAA’s largest fund raising effort with more than 100 area businesses aligning themselves with local agriculture and CAA’s mission to promote and support ag. In 2019 over $22,000 was raised in support of CAA.
We can’t do it alone, so please consider adding your business or personal support today!
