Overview: Rodeos are synonymous with the heritage of the Southwest. The mission of the PRCA is to preserve the agrarian/livestock culture of the West for the 21st century. Developed as a showcase for the talents of cattle and horse ranchers, contemporary rodeos have become more theatrical than their agrarian predecessors. Traditional events, like barrel racing, steer roping, bronc riding, bull riding, and steer wrestling, are still at the show's adrenaline-pumped center stage, but additional entertainment has been added to appeal to folks of all ages.

Details: The Canyonlands PRCA Rodeo offers music, dancing, raffles, and events for kids. The most popular event that children can compete in is called mutton bustin'. Kids are placed on top of a sheep and prizes are awarded to the little one that can hold on for the longest.
