Real Cowboys Win Real Prizes at the Denver Championship WRCA Ranch Rodeo

Ranch Rodeo cowboys who ride out their time on a wily bronc and get the job done with a calf and a rope certainly deserve rewards. So do horses with the heart to stop a runaway steer. What about the best team working together under the dual pressures of the clock and the crowd? They’re winners, too. And let’s remember this: After the Ranch Rodeo dust settles, all of these cowboys will go home, brush down their horses, saddle up again, and do the tough ranch work which ultimately puts food on dinner tables everywhere.

These hands ought to leave the arena with something more tangible than memories. That’s exactly what the sponsors for the Denver Championship WRCA Ranch Rodeo are making happen, by providing prizes for the top hands and horses at the West’s best reality show.

The winning Ranch Team will ride away with custom silver buckles courtesy of Rocky Mountain Farm Pros and handcrafted by Mortenson Silver & Saddles of Santa Fe. Brighton Feed & Saddlery will present a Supreme saddle to the Top Hand. The Top Horse will receive a CSI Saddle Pad and an Equiface Saver. Kent Feeds is giving feed to the top ranch, and a winner in a category to be announced (even cowboys like secrets) will receive a Whisperer Waterer.

Of course, there wouldn’t be an arena for the cowboys to compete in, without the know-how and generosity of Priefert Manufacturing, who is providing chutes, pens and panels (all of which are for sale)—and the necessary set-up for a successful Ranch Rodeo.

The ranch teams vying for the prizes include:

-Bar Cross and Rolling Hills ranches- Kansas

-Broken Spear and San Jose ranches - Colorado

-Buck Creek Ranch and Lonesome Pine Ranch - Kansas

-Haythorn Land & Cattle Co. - Nebraska

-Higg Ranch, a division of Ryan-Stroud Ranches - Texas & New Mexico

-High Card Ranches and Conley Ranch - Texas

-MC3 Cattle and SV Land & Cattle - Texas

-Rush Creek Cattle Company and JOD Ranch - Colorado

-Thompson Ranch – Texas

-Timberlake and Buhr ranches – Colorado

-Wilson and T4 Cattle Company - Texas

-Withers & Smith Ranches – Colorado

To win, the teams from these outfits have to conquer Wild Cow Milking, Ranch Branding, Stray Gathering, Ranch Sorting, and Trailer Loading. When the last time clocks in, these cowboys will have earned their rewards.
