Join us for a traditional Ranch Rodeo where the contestants compete as teams from ranches, instead of as individuals as in a “regular” rodeo. While the number of team members can vary, 4 or 5 members per team is common. These cowboys and cowgirls will “Ride for the Brand” on Thursday night as they participate in events that duplicate the type of work they perform on a daily basis.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 & SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2022
Friday and Saturday nights, the Pete Domenici Arena will be the home of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association with contestants coming from all over the US to compete for the $2000 per event added money. HiLo ProRodeo, one of the fastest growing stock contractors in the nation, will be bringing the best in bucking stock and the fastest roping and doggin’ animals to add to the excitement. The SNMSF has the reputation for putting on an outstanding rodeo, and this year will be no different!!
