Who COMPETES?

The American Royal ProRodeo is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and the Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA). Members of these associations can compete in the rodeo by entering.

What's THE PROCESS?

The PRCA and WPRA rodeo seasons begin on October 1 and end September 30 annually. Cowboys and cowgirls are trying to make it to the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) held in Las Vegas based off of the money they have earned during the season. This makes the American Royal ProRodeo one of the last rodeos and chances of the season.

What's THE PRIZE?

$40,000 is up for grabs at this one up, two day rodeo! $5,000 will be awarded in each event.
