Vegas NFR Icons
Vegas NFR Icons

For many years, the rodeo pinnacle was predominantly defined by the PRCA, which proudly presented the crème de la crème of rodeo champions at the NFR. Since relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1985, this grand event has showcased the top fifteen monetary achievers across seven rodeo disciplines.

Those leading the pack in cumulative earnings, including their NFR winnings, are crowned the undisputed World’s Champions. Yet, the landscape shifted in 1992 when the PBR entered the arena. Attracting numerous elite bull riders, the PBR commenced its lucrative finals in the heart of Las Vegas, just ahead of the NFR‘s kick-off. And, amplifying the representation of women in the sport, the WPRA continues its instrumental role, aligning its barrel racing finals with the PRCA and presenting them jointly at the NFR.

About Professional Rodeo
About Professional Rodeo

Professional Rodeos:

In the vibrant realm of rodeo sports, the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) has emerged as a significant organization singularly devoted to bull riding. Historically, the rodeo was tainted with gender bias, sidelining cowgirls from the main events.

In 1948, pioneering women established the Girls Rodeo Association to counteract this imbalance. This entity has since evolved into the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA), an exclusive platform for female athletes.

Today, the WPRA is at the forefront of promoting women’s barrel racing, and in collaboration with the PRCA, it orchestrates barrel racing finals at the esteemed National Finals Rodeo (NFR).
