According to their Facebook page the Santa Rosa Roundup is traditionally held in the historical Santa Rosa Rodeo Grounds on Highway 283 South in Vernon. This area was the home of the great quarter horse legend Poco Bueno. It was also where Tiny's Gay, Bunny Bid, The Signature, Jet Deep, Game Plan, Super Sound Charge and other great quarter horse legends stood.

The Santa Rosa Roundup has been a North Texas tradition for more than 70 years and will be missed by all this year.
