More Wild West Party Game Ideas
Want some more game ideas to get 'yer crowd running around? No problem. Here are a few to make your party a blast:

Lassoing up Some Fun!
Grab some rope and make some lassos for the kids to give there hand a wrestling with a bull! Set up a hay bale with some horns, and have the kids practice throwing the lasso. They'll love this game, and you'll be surprise how good some little cowboys are!
A Real Cowgirl!

Ride a Horse (Saddle on Hay Bale)
Set up a saddle on a hay bale and let the kids "go for a ride!"
If real horses aren't part of your party, no problem! Just set up some hay bales with saddles (possibly borrow some from a local barn/horse friend), and you'll have your cowboys riding the whole party long!

Needle in a Haystack
I remember this game fondly from my father's company picnic, year after year.... Finding treasures in hay is a lot of work-- but the reward is well worth it!

Layout a large tarp on the ground (you will definitely want the tarp so clean up is easy.) Un furl a hay bale or 2 onto the tarp. Now throw little treasures or coins throughout the way.

Line the kids up around the tarp, and set them off hunting together to find their treasure!

Horse Relays
The old fashioned horse on a stick can be great fun for relays at a cowboy/western party. Separate your party into 2 teams and set up a obstacle course through your yard that each cowboy much gallop around. Come up with fun "stops" the horse rider must do along the way. Relay races are always a hit!

Square Dance
Head online to buy a fun square dance recording, and learn a couple steps. Now gather the party together and put on a little square dance fun!
