The 2017 Cowboy Capital of the World Pro Rodeo presented by Twisted J, was a rodeo for the record books in all areas! From fans in the stands and ticket sales, to nearly 600 Pro Rodeo athletes, and an all time high payout, Stephenville’s PRCA Rodeo undeniably lived up to the title of ‘Cowboy Capital of the World.’
For the third consecutive year, the Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo has been awarded as one of the Top 5 Medium Size PRCA Rodeos of the Year. This honor is extremely well received by Cowboy Capital Pro Rodeo Association committee members and all are pleased to be considered! Each year the committee strives to make the best rodeo for fans, contestants, and rodeo sponsors. The PRCA Year End Awards Banquet will be held on Wednesday, December 6 at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Several CCPRA board members will be on hand to attend the banquet and hopefully accept the award for Medium Size Rodeo of the Year. Either way, the CCPRA is happy to be apart of one of Pro Rodeos biggest nights of the year. Truth!
The 2017 rodeo was also awarded the Justin Best Footing Award by barrel racers from the WPRA Texas Circuit. This is the fourth consecutive year to receive this honor and the CCPRA is proud of it! Several CCPRA board members are WPRA Card Holders and take to heart providing fast, safe, consistent ground for all performances and slack. Stephenville’s rodeo will ALWAYS drag every five and is proud to set a high standard for Texas rodeos. The CCPRA thanks the barrel racers so much for recognizing the ground crews hard work and are very excited to attend the WPRA Star Celebration in Las Vegas.
New this year, the Cowboy Capital Pro Rodeo Association has been named one of the six finalists to the AGCO/PRCA Sowing Good Deeds Program. The winner will be announced during the PRCA Year End Awards Banquet.
