Barnes PRCA Rodeo

Barnes PRCA Rodeo, the longest family-run rodeo business in the U.S. with over 60 years rodeo experience, will present the competition. 

The rodeo is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), the governing body of rodeo in North America. Over 600 PRCA rodeos are held each year.


Seven Standard Events:

Saddle Bronc

Saddle Bronc Riding

Derived from a cowboy's task of breaking a wild horse, this is rodeo's classic event. Riders hold on to the rein, remain firmly seated, and try to synchronize their spurs to the movements of the horse to achieve the highest score. 

Riders must mark out, or hold both heels above the horse's shoulders as the ride starts — the same rule applies in bareback riding.

Bareback Riding

Ever ridden a jackhammer with one hand? That's what this event has been compared to. Riders hold on to a leather rigging that's secured with a cinch and aim for a wild, yet controlled ride with points earned by a back-and-forth spurring motion as the horse bucks. 

As in all roughstock events, half the score comes from the animal. No touching with the cowboy's free hand; any illegal contact results in no score.

Steer Wrestling

Steer Wrestling

Ever had the guts to slide off a horse galloping at full speed and take down a 500-pound steer by the horns? These guys do. Stop the clock in four seconds or less, and you'll earn a nice check. As in all timed events, the animal gets a head start. 

Too much horsepower too soon will break the barrier and result in a 10-second penalty.

 Team Roping

Team Roping

Let's play catch, partner. Two ropers, a header and a heeler, take off after a steer. After the header ropes the steer around the horns, he turns it so the heeler can rope both hind legs and complete the run. The world record is 3.3 seconds, faster than it took to read this. 

This event depends on two solid catches. Anything less and you don't get paid.

Tie Down

Tie-Down Roping

A cowboy throws his loop and catches a calf, then dismounts, sprints to the calf, and flanks it to the ground. As quickly as possible, he then ties any three legs together with a piggin' string and throws his hands in the air to stop the clock. 

Tie fast, and tie tightly. The calf has six seconds to stay put after the run. If it breaks free, then it's no time (and no cash either).

Barrel Racing

Barrel Racing

Horsepower in its truest sense. Time is the only thing that matters here, and these cowgirls and their horses have gotten so fast that champions are often decided by hundredths of a second. 

Don't topple a barrel, which results in a five-second penalty.

bull riding

Bull Riding

Maybe it was a bet. Maybe it was a dare. No one knows for sure which cowboy was crazy enough to ride a bucking bull for the first time. Today, there's a reason it's the last event at a rodeo. The sheer excitement of a 150-pound man vs. a 1,500-pound beast makes this the crowd favorite, hands down. 

Just hang on, but roughstock rules apply — hold on with one hand only. As with all roughstock events, style matters.
