The Rodeo Report

Illustration by Eleanor Shakespeare

Saddle up for the Rodeo Report, Texas Monthly’s on-going coverage from the 2018 PRCA circuit, sponsored by Wrangler.

The rodeo season has swung into high gear, and Texas Monthly’s Rodeo Report is riding right along to give an inside look into the high-intensity world that combines talented athletes with horses and livestock, steep competition, old-school traditions, and family fun.

With deep roots in ranching, today’s pro rodeo circuit takes a page from modern sports and entertainment as cowboys and cowgirls vie for worldwide rankings and tens of thousands in monetary prizes. Rodeo Report’s coverage will include competitor updates, performance analysis, and behind-the-scenes stories of triumphs, challenges, injuries, and rerides.

Rodeo Report focuses on rodeos sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the biggest rodeo association in the world. PRCA rodeos are organized and sponsored by chambers of commerce and local businesses. Winners at these events earn points and money that qualify them for the PRCA’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, held in December.

Keep an eye on this page for the latest news about the bulldoggers, rank bulls, tight hooeys, and talented hazers that make rodeo the great sport that it is. And follow the Rodeo Report action on Texas Monthly’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Anne Heinen
