An Annual Affair
IT AIN'T OUR
In 2015, the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo celebrated 15 years of good old family entertainment. The Rodeo continues to elevate the level of competition which draws the best contestants from across the world to compete in the richest two day rodeo in the nation with a purse totaling over $250,000.
The top 30 contestants compete for cash prizes in the hopes of continuing on for the grand prize at the Nationals Final Rodeo in Las Vegas in saddle bronc, bareback riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, bull riding and team roping. This is a show of the best of the best!
Celebrating the golden age of early California history and the American West, Rancho Mission Viejo has committed to the preservation of the cowboy way of life. Carrying on the cowboy tradition of "passing the hat" in support of a sick child or need friend, all proceeds from the rodeo will benefit local charities.
