Just off Main Street at the North end of town, you'll find our Rodeo Arena, where you'll see cowboys climb on top of some of the meanest critters ever lived!
That's not a riding machine that you can turn down so you won't spill your beer...that's 1,500 lbs of angry bull that's not about to let anybody sit on his back for long!
You'll see local riders and professionals as they sit down for what cowboys call the longest 8 seconds in the world.
About May, you'll want to call to check our schedule for Open Bull Riding.
Why do they do this, you may ask.
"A working cowboy's everyday duties included riding, roping, branding, horse breaking, and the like, and these activities often served also as his pastime.
"In the spring, when various ranches cooperated in the roundup, men competed informally, wagering on the fastest roper, the best horse breaker.
In Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, large ranches often encouraged "cowboy contests" in roping, riding, and horse breaking, and the sport of rodeo evolved from them in the late nineteenth century."
