Weekend Watch: PRCA Championship Rodeo

FARGO – Saddle up!

If you’re looking for a wild ride this weekend, throw your hat into the ring for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Championship Rodeo at the Fargodome Friday and Saturday nights.

Of course, attendees won’t actually get a chance to ride the horses and once they see these buckin’ broncs, they’ll be happier in their seats than in the saddle.

Part of the thrill of the rodeo is watching who gets thrown and who holds on for eight seconds. But there are less violent aspects of the event. Watch for the finesse and speed of the barrel racers, the hand-eye coordination of the calf, breakaway or team ropers or the brute strength of steer wrestling.

So grab a seat - instead of landing on your own – and enjoy the ride.
