Wednesday morning found Colt and Katie Garen-Miller and their horses and their children loading up and heading out to Salt Lake City for what is known as the "Million Dollar Rodeo."

It is also known as the "Days of 47 Cowboy Games and Rodeo" and is the second year Salt Lake City has hosted the event.

The rodeo will be held July 19-24 and is referred to as the "Gold Standard in Rodeo."

Katie said that, to the best of her knowledge, she and Colt are the only couple invited to the big event in Salt Lake City.
