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.
