WOW! It’s coming fast! Which cowboy and cowgirls are you rooting for during this year’s NFR? Erath County will be well represented! 

#CowboyCapital

🇺🇸 As we celebrate Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, the Cowboy Capital Pro Rodeo Association is proud to recognize Lamphone “Johnny” Vorachith as the 2019 American Patriot Recipient. During this year’s Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo, Johnny was honored and awarded a gift of $7,200. Money was raised from a Facebook Auction, Friday night ticket sales, and a contribution from Wrangler.

Johnny served in the US Army as a Field Artillery Specialist in the 82nd Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Upon being honorably discharged in 2014, he enrolled at Tarleton State University where he is a Business Administration major with plans to graduate next spring. In 2018, Johnny was unfortunately diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that was affecting his sight and required surgery. Along with handling his health issues, Johnny worked 2 jobs, all the while maintaining his responsibilities as a college student with a strong, positive outlook on life.

The CCPRA salutes Johnny and thanks him, as well as all the other veterans that served our country on this special holiday. Thank you to Juan Garcia, TSU Veterans Association President for recommending Johnny and assisting the CCPRA in finding this year’s American Patriot recipient.

Over the last five years, the CCPRA has proudly presented American Patriot Night during the Friday night performance of the PRCA Rodeo. Since the programs creation in 2015, over $70,000 has been awarded to five of our local Military Veterans as way to say “thank you” for their service to our country and community. Candidates of the program are selected through a process based on several criteria including financial need, medical aide, and character. The American Patriot program is intended to be a very loving, genuine gesture, and a heartfelt way to say “thank you” for their service. Please join us on Friday, September 25, 2020 as we celebrate American Patriot Night next year!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween y’all!

STEPHENVILLE, Texas — The Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo is proud to announce that Stephenville was recently voted the winner of two very big awards from the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association:

🔹Justin Boots Best Footing Award Winner - Texas Circuit

🔹WPRA Medium Size Rodeo of the Year (Co-Winner with the Range Days Pro Rodeo in Rapid City, South Dakota)

THANK YOU to the WPRA Members who entered and voted for Stephenville as having the best dirt in the Texas Circuit. This is the 6th time in a row (8th time overall) that Stephenville has received this honor. Fast, safe, and consistent dirt drug on five, will always be the standard at Stephenville’s Pro Rodeo. All of our rodeo committee members take our dirt seriously and the fact that there are WPRA Card Holders on the board slightly enhances it’s importance. THANK YOU Justin Boots for supporting and funding this award every year. The Justin Brand has been a great friend to rodeo for many years and it is much appreciated!

Special THANK YOU to the WPRA Board of Directors for awarding Stephenville the Medium Size Rodeo of the Year honor. Stephenville is excited to be considered one of the best rodeos in your association! A great payout as well as trophy buckles, engraved rifles, and custom spurs awarded to the Barrel Racing and Breakaway Roping Champions are contributed to Stephenville’s generous Rodeo Sponsors.

THANK YOU to all the crew at Lone Star Arena! Your expertise and dedication is second to none. Cole, Jett, and your Black Widow Groomers are FABULOUS!

The Cowboy Capital Pro Rodeo Association is so proud to win both of these awards and takes great pride in the responsibility of having great ground and a great rodeo for the ladies of the WPRA! We can’t wait to see everyone again September 25, 26, & 27 of 2020!
