The 2018 Cowboy Capital of the World Pro Rodeo is gearing up and should be the best one yet! Last years event was a rodeo for the record books. From the 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 included in the Top 5. Each year the committee strives to make the best rodeo for fans, contestants, and rodeo sponsors. Maybe 2018 will be the year Stephenville wins Rodeo of the Year!
Also, for the fourth consecutive year, Stephenville’s rodeo was awarded the Justin Best Footing Award by barrel racers from the WPRA Texas Circuit. The CCPRA is very proud of this award and have achieved this honor a total of six times since Justin Boots began sponsoring the program. 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!
To round out the year, the CCPRA was named as one of the six finalists to the AGCO/PRCA Sowing Good Deeds Program. While Stephenville did not win this award in its inaugural year, the committee is preparing and will try again this year.
