The skills and talent on display at rodeo contests date all the way back to things ranchers had to accomplish
first in 19th century Spain and later in the New World as ranching expanded throughout North and South America. Back in the
beginning of the 19th Century there were some informal rodeo battles in the western United States and northern Mexico, but
it was only after the American Civil War in 1872 that the first officially sanctioned rodeo contest was held in Cheyenne,
Wyoming. Rodeo is still incredibly popular in the western United States and parts of Canada as is the professional rodeo circuit
which is governed by Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Women's Professional Rodeo Association. The sport of rodeo
grew incredibly in popularity in the late 1800s and early 1900s century as a result of the rise of Wild West Shows and their
stars like buffalo Bill Cody and Annie Oakley. Even today rodeo still has powerful roots in pop culture and stands as a uniquely
American sporting event that is not to be missed.
