Rodeo competitions put on display the kills which can be traced
back to things ranchers needed to do back in 19th century Spain and later on in the Americas when ranching started to expand
in North and South America. In the early 1800s there were occasionally informal rodeo battles in the western United States
and northern Mexico, but it was only after the Civil War in 1872 that the first formal rodeo competition was held in Cheyenne,
Wyoming. Rodeo is still immensely popular in the western United States and in parts of Canada and the professional rodeo circuit
is governed by Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Women's Professional Rodeo Association. The sport really grew in
popularity in the late 19th and early 20th century with the rise of Wild West Shows and their stars like Buffalo Bill Cody
and Annie Oakley. To this day rodeo still has deep roots in pop culture and remains a uniquely American sporting event that
is not to be missed.
