Cowboys must stay on a bucking bull for 8 seconds and are scored by only two judges. The winner with the top score after a second round takes home the annual World Champion award bonus of $1,000,000. No doubt, being a professional rodeo rider is a tough, challenging, thrilling and highly rewarding profession.
WINNINGS: Professional cowboys can generally bring in from $40,000 to $170,000 a year. Larger rodeos hold the potential for winnings up to $100,000 , but on average a cowboy is doing a good job if he brings in $1,000 per rodeo, Hofer said.
The safety of everyone is paramount for Rodeo patrons to enjoy a fun atmosphere. Please note that all personal belongings (such as purses, camera cases, back packs, strollers, etc.) Anyone refusing to be searched will not be allowed on the Rodeo grounds.
Head-on to the Stage: Seats directly across from the stage, like those in 135, 136, 137 and 138 provide the most comfortable looks of the performance. Even upper level sections offer unobstructed sitelines.
