National Finals Rodeo History
Rodeo competitions put on display skills which can
be traced all the way back to jobs ranchers needed to do back in 19th century Spain and eventually in North and South America
when ranching began to gain traction in the Americas. In the early 1800s there were a few informal rodeo contests in northern
Mexico and the western United States, but it was only in 1872, when the first true formal rodeo contest was held in Cheyenne,
Wyoming. Rodeos are still incredibly popular in the western United States and parts of Canada, and the Professional Rodeo
Cowboys Association and Women's Professional Rodeo Association governs the professional rodeo scene and the sport began to
really grow in popularity in the late 19th and early 20th century thanks to stars like Annie Oakley and Buffalo Bill Cody
and their popular Wild West Shows. Even now rodeo has a powerful grip on pop culture and remains a uniquely American sport
that any sports lover owes it to him/herself to see first-hand sooner or later.
