Rodeo way is often the only way in the valley

052211vacRodeo1

The root of the rodeo is cowboys and cowgirls taking skills and practices from the ranch and bringing them to the competitive arena.

Some of the current rodeo events include tie-down roping, team roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, bareback bronc riding, bull riding and barrel racing.

The Grand Valley has its fair share rodeos for the competitor or spectator, including the Fruita RimRock Rodeo every Tuesday night beginning in early June.

The Mesa County Fairground will host two large rodeo events with the PBR Bull Riding on July 21 as a part of the Mesa County Fair and the Colorado Pro Rodeo Finals from Sept. 16–18 at the fairgrounds.
