Catch “the world’s richest one-day rodeo” on TV or online if you aren’t headed to Texas.
On Sunday, February 25, RFD-TV’s The American rodeo returns to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Now in its fifth go-round, the event is lauded as “the world’s richest one-day rodeo,” handing out $2.5 million in total. Semifinals have already kicked off this week in Fort Worth, and the world’s top rodeo athletes are preparing to compete this weekend in team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, tie down roping, bareback riding, saddle bronc, and bull riding.
