As the holidays slip by and we look forward to the New Year, let's take a few minutes to reflect on why we love the sport of rodeo. Rodeo is a diverse sport with a variety of events, offering a little something for everyone. Some of these events, such as bull riding, are displays of raw power. Other events, such as barrel racing and roping, pair talented cowboys and cowgirls with skilled horses in events that push the limits of speed and agility. Many rodeo enthusiasts like to watch from the sidelines, while others log thousands of hours on the road traveling from rodeo to rodeo in pursuit of their dreams.
Why do you love rodeo? What draws you back, day after day? Is it the promise of a big check, or the pure adrenaline rush of a successful run?
