When I was growing up my brothers and I were always playing sports but normally once per year our parents would load up all of us kids and we would jump in the car to go to the rodeo. It was always a special occasion and so much fun to watch and experience something new. I’ve never once participated in any sort of rodeo action, but I have a ton of respect for the ones that put their body on the line in this fast-paced sport. We are so fortunate to have so many tremendous rodeos across the state of Texas. I wanted to make sure you know about some of the very best. 

Even though I grew up watching football, there is nothing more intense than seeing a chute open and a bull rider holding on with everything he’s got. The way that barrel racers can just fly across the arena is amazing to see in person. The steer wrestling and roping events can be so much fun too. Just talking about the events makes me want to go to a rodeo soon!
