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 after the Civil War in 1872 that the first formal rodeo competition was held in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Rodeo remains immensely
popular in the western United States and parts of Canada and the professional rodeo circuit is governed by Professional Rodeo
Cowboys Association and Women's Professional Rodeo Association and 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 Annie Oakley and Buffalo Bill Cody. To this day rodeo
has strong roots in pop culture and stands as a uniquely American sporting event that is not to be missed.
When attending any PRCA Rodeo event it is easy to get caught up in all the action whether you have been
attending the event for years or are completely new to rodeo. The instant attendees enter an arena for a PRCA Rodeo event
it is clear that rodeo is home to some of the most passionate fans and athletes of any sport in the world. The performers
are always willing to mingle with fans and sign autographs and take pictures with kids while the announcers make the event
easy to follow for even the most novice rodeo fan.
While the first organized rodeo took place in
Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1872, Prescott, Arizona has staked its claim to having held the first professional rodeo back in 1888
as they were the first to charge admission and hand out trophies. In the 1920s the first organized rodeo associations began
to appear and rodeo has had a strong hold on pop culture ever since.
