Prepare to be thrilled once again for the 2017 PRCA Rodeo Season. You can't beat attending a rodeo for good times so don't pass up a chance to get your tickets! The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) will be sanctioning rodeo events throughout North America in their usual 12 regional circuit system. Fans can watch as contestants compete throughout the year in exciting events such as bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronco riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding in an attempt to become one of the top two competitors in their region. These cowboys can do it all, not like the Professonal Bull Riders, who specialize in ridding. These regional victors will then test their skills at the four day Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo championship beginning April 4th. As each competitor faces grueling challenges, one winner will be named national circuit finals champion for each of eight PRCS Rodeo events and receive the National Circuit Championship gold belt-buckle. In addition to these winners, one overall champion will be crowned the All-Around Cowboy.
Fans should also be looking forward to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo which will take place at the end of the 2017 season. The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, or NFR, will showcase the top fifteen monetary winners in each PRCA discipline who have earned a trip to compete in Las Vegas from December 5th to the 14th. Fans will be able to enjoy this culmination of ultimate rodeo action either in person f they buy tickets or on television thanks to the Great American Country network. This event takes place over the course of ten consecutive days and competitors will struggle to become the top money winner for the year, in which case they will be crowned the year’s champion in every event. Other notable events, new to this year, include a series of four made-for-TV Rodeo Champions Challenges rodeos to be featured on the Great American Country Network and will showcase ten top-notch competitors going head to head in seven events as well as some grade-a livestock. Each challenge will be aired in an hour-long format starting with the May 18th event in Redding, California which will be broadcasted on July 7th. Additional challenges will take place in Amarillo, Texas (airs October 6th), Kissimmee, Florida (airs October 20th), and Winnie, Texas (airs November 10th). If you buy PRCA rodeo tickets be sure to look for legendary competitors such as four time world champion Bareback Rider Bobby Mote, All Around Cowboy Trevor Brazile, and Steer Wrestler Luke Branquinho at these Challenges and don’t miss your chance to get tickets to these and other future PRCA events!
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys association is a North American organization that is responsible for sanctioning rodeo venues and events and is made of members who compete in these rodeo events. The PRCA was created in 1936 after a rodeo promoter, W.T. Johnson, refused to add cowboys’ entry fees to the prize and a group of competitors walked out of the rodeo. Johnson eventually gave into competitors’ demands and this led to the formation of the Cowboys’ Turtle Association, named as such because although they were slow to organize, when it was necessary, they weren’t afraid to stick their necks out for what they wanted. The Turtles eventually changed their name to the Rodeo Cowboys Association in 1945 and ultimately became the PRCA in 1975. The PRCA headquarters are located in Colorado Springs, Colorado and are also home to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and the Museum of the American Cowboy. It's never a dull moment at a PRCA rodeo event so get your tickets early and see all the fun live!
