I documented as much as I could of The 1836 Chuckwagon Races 2022 held on the Diamond B Ranch near Neches, Texas. It was the tenth year of celebrating Texas's revolutionary history with workshops, demonstrations, trail rides, mounted games, mounted shooting, open pasture roping, bronc riding, barrel racing, horse racing, and yes, several classes of chuckwagon races.
I am in the process of publishing videos from this multi-day event and I will add samples of some of the actions below as they are published uncensored on the American Heartlands Channel on Rumble and all the others are on Dusty Reins Stories channel on YouTube.

Rodeo competition began in the 1800s in the American West when cattle ranches would give their cowpokes a break from ranch work and an opportunity to challenge each other for bragging rights for being top hands. The events were held in open pasture because there were no rodeo arenas at that time. The 1836 honors that heritage by holding a rodeo competition in the open pasture on the Diamond B Ranch.
