The 2013 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo has come and gone for another year, but competitors and spectators alike enjoyed nearly three weeks of jam-packed rodeo action. Bull riders, barrel racers, ropers and everyone in between are ready and rearing to go in their hunt for their own World Championship buckle. The calendar is filled with rodeos as cowboys and cowgirls traverse the country in an effort to boost their earnings, hoping for a coveted spot in the 2013 National Finals Rodeo. Some competitors have their sights set on the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, going down April 4-6 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Others are likely headed to Rodeo Austin, one of the premier rodeo events in Texas. One certainty about rodeo is even as winter loosens its grip on the country and spring showers dot the landscape, hard-core rodeo lovers will brave the mud and muck to catch a piece of the action.
