We have been counting down the days until cowgirls and cowboys from across the nation come to the awesome and beautiful Silver Spurs Arena – Osceola Heritage Park to compete for their chance at competing for over $1 million in cash winnings and prizes. As of today, we have 9 days (that can’t go by quick enough) before kick off of the biggest rodeo in town!

These contestants have worked hard to be the best in each of their regions. The country is split up of 12 regions consisting of 33 states so we have the top dogs heading on down to Central Florida to show us their skill sets and talent in the following categories:

  • Barrel Racing
  • Bull Riding
  • Team Roping
  • Bareback Riding
  • Saddle Bronc Riding
  • Steer Wrestling

Tune in to the Wrangler Network for the Thursday’s, Friday’s and Saturday’s performances. The finals will air on CBS Network on Sunday April 10th.

We send out our best wishes to the qualifiers in the our circuit; the Southeastern Circuit (Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee & Arkansas):

This event is sponsored by  Spirit of the Swamp Airboat Rides and supported in part by the City of Kissimmee – City Hall, so head on down to Broadway in Downtown Kissimmee to witness a piece of the action.

Until then, ride safe & God bless!
