Pro Rodeo

Bulls and broncs, cowboys and cowgirls – rodeo’s biggest superstars perform amazing feats of athleticism during each performance of our professional rodeo. Whether you prefer thrills and spills or speed and agility, the National Western’s ProRodeo is the event for you.

Stadium Arena Mutton Bustin'

Five to 7-year-olds under 55 pounds ride a sheep out of a bucking chute and into the rodeo arena. Like professional rodeo events, time and score count, but all of these aspiring cowboys and cowgirls receive a participation award from the sponsor. Anything goes, and usually does, as contestants cling to the back of thickly coated lamb as long as they can.

Register by Friday, January 6
