Rodeo team getting started at UK

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A new University of Kentucky team is looking for students who know how to ride a horse and handle a rope.

The UK Rodeo Team practices at Kismet Farm in Paris and is open to all students, with or without prior rodeo experience.

The team plans to become part of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association in 2014. Team organizers are using this year to form the team and recruit members.

Dues start at $25 per semester. Additional fees depend on the specific events students choose. Barrel racing, roping, goat tying or steer wrestling cost $150 per semester. Bull riding starts at $500 per semester.

The team has already lined up one fundraiser.

The team is housed within UK's College of Agriculture, Food and Environment student organizations.
