The American Royal Rodeo 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.


Cowboys and cowgirls across the country are trying to make it to the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) held in Las Vegas in December, based off of the money they have earned during the season. This makes the American Royal Rodeo an important stop for the contestants to earn more money.


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