The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series offers the best Bareback Riding, Team Roping, Calf Scrambling, Steer Wrestling Clown Act in all of Colorado! If you spend a weekend in Steamboat Springs Colorado this Summer, you dont want to miss the Pro Rodeo Series!
This rodeo is the most successful weekly rodeo in the country. While the roots of rodeo in this modest little Northwestern Colorado ranch town/world class ski resort trace back over 100 years, the humble beginnings of the weekly rodeo were in the mid 1970's as the "Friday Night Jackpot." Contestants gathered once a week to compete for their accumulated entry fees.
Within a few of years, the Jackpot Rodeo grew to include Saturday night as well as Friday and the Steamboat Springs Rodeo Series name was coined.
In 1988, the first and last weekends of the 10-week series were sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and were known as Ski Town Stampede I & II. With the success of its first two forays into ProRodeo, the committee decided it was time to go "all pro." In 1989, the name was changed to Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series and has been fully sanctioned by the PRCA ever since.
Years and years of effort and improvement were recognized by the rodeo industry in 2002. By a vote of contestants, stock contractors, contract personnel and other rodeo committees, the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series was selected from approximately 500 PRCA rodeos that are neither indoor rodeos nor large (based on their added money) outdoor rodeos as 2002 Small Outdoor Rodeo of the Year. The Board of Directors recognizes that this ultimate honor in rodeo was not for a particular weekend, or even a particular year, but truly amounts to a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Calf Scramble and Ram Scramble For the Kids!
You do not have to register your child for the Scrambles. The announcer will let the audience know in advance when the kids should start lining up. There are specific directions in the day sheets as to where the kids should enter the arena.
Calf Scramble – for kids ages 6-12
Kids gather in the arena, the calf is let out into the arena and the kids chase it to grab the ribbon off its tail. The winner of this event receives a gift certificate for a pair of Wrangler children’s jeans
Ram Scramble – for kids ages 5 and under
The young ones compete the same as the big kids, however gentle sheep are used instead of calves. The winner of this event receives a $15 gift certificate from F.M. Light & Sons.
