This year will be the 5th Annual Garfield County Fair Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) ProRodeo and Women’s Pro Rodeo Association (WPRA) sponsored by Coors, an official national sponsor of the PRCA, and Western Slope Communications.
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) is the oldest professional rodeo-sanctioning body in the world. We continue our tradition of honoring American veterans at the ProRodeo event.
Roughstock events include bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding. Timed events include steer wrestling, team roping and tie-down roping. A contestant’s goal is to post the fastest time in their event. Women’s Professional Rodeo Association presents barrel racing.
The stock contractors for PRCA/WPRA are Salt River Rodeo Company from Arizona and Triple V Rodeo Company from Wyoming. The stock contractor cares for all of the animals in the rodeo. Salt River knows the importance of good breeding stock and are in it for the long haul. Good horses and bulls are athletes that love what they do. It becomes obvious that Salt River loves giving these athletes the opportunity to be spectacular, capturing the hearts of cowboys and fans everywhere. Triple V Rodeo have over 50 years of professional rodeo experience, and care about production, providing first class bucking horses and bulls. The highest standards are required by PRCA for the stock contractor to provide care and humane treatment for the top-performing livestock taking part in the PRCA rodeo.
