Canadian Finals Rodeo History
The skills on display at a rodeo contest
can be traced back to things ranchers needed to do first in 19th century Spain and later in the Americas, as ranching began
to expand in North and South America. In the early 1800s there were some informal rodeo battles in the western United States
and northern Mexico, but it was not until 1872 that the first recorded formal rodeo competition was held in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Rodeo remains immensely popular in the western United States and parts of Canada, which helps to make events like the Canadian
Finals a major celebration each and every year. These days, the professional rodeo circuit is governed by Professional Rodeo
Cowboys Association and Women's Professional Rodeo Association and the sport continues to grow in popularity, which really
got started all the way back in the in the late 19th and early 20th century with the rise of stars like Annie Oakley and Buffalo

Bill Cody goes down as one of the great figures in rodeo history, as he was immensely influential not only in the U.S. and
Canada but also overseas, where he brought his showmanship to Great Britain and other places in Europe. Many years later,
