Rodeo is one of the oldest sports in America. It finds its roots in the domestic cattle trade of the American West, and the rules were greatly influenced by Spanish-Mexican settlers in the American territories. As the sport grew in popularity, it spread across our nation to the northern territories, where legends like Chris LeDoux and Tad Lucas eventually cut their teeth to become stars. Today, Rodeo is at the heart of American sports history. It is a favored pastime of the rugged North Dakota cowboy and cowgirl.
Calf roping and barrel racing came from that natural urge to ride wild things. On Saturday, March 25th, at the fairgrounds in Watford City, you and the family can witness this time-honored tradition with your own eyes and ears. Headings Rodeo is hosting the PRCA Sanctioned event - Extreme Bares & Broncs Classic, produced by Smith Pro Rodeos (11-time PRCA Stock Contractor of the Year) and sponsored by Justin Boots. This adrenaline-filled event will feature bareback riding and saddle bronc riding competitions.
The Extreme Bares & Broncs Event has a purse of $30,000, so the stakes are high for these equine adrenaline junkies and their wild counterparts. Of course, full safety measures are always taken to ensure the future of the sport and its participants. The horses are energetic, the beer will be cold, and the temps inside will rise at this no holds barred western rodeo event, so get out and see it before it bucks off.
