Springing Into Rodeo

By February 12, 2013

Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, and while many sports are just ramping up, rodeo events continue to rage on around the country. The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo wrapped up on February 9th, and this year's event was filled with action, suspense and good times. Competitors took home more than $500,000 in prize money, padding their pockets and continuing their journey to the 2013 National Finals Rodeo.  Hot on the tail of Fort Worth comes the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, which runs from February 7th - 24th. Back-to-back rodeos can be stressful for dedicated cowboys and cowgirls, but many are lucky enough to travel in vehicles so luxurious, you'd almost think you were in a five-star hotel. Winning the gold buckle at the NFR is all about the wins, and top-ranking competitors will log dozens of rodeos on their way to The Big Show in Las Vegas. Cheer on your favorite cowboy from the comfort of your living room, or take the plunge and catch the action first-hand at a rodeo near you.
