Staff Report

This weekend marked the 66th Rodeo de Santa Fe. Audience members were treated to heart-pounding, dirt-slinging, action-packed performances of top PRCA rodeo athletes and top PRCA rodeo entertainment … big time rodeo, with a small town feeling.

The Rodeo de Santa Fe began in 1949 when Roy Butler, Austin “Slim” Green, Gene Petchesky, Paul Ragle, Paul Rutledge and few others had a dream and determination to organize a professional rodeo in Santa Fe. This dream exceeded their ambitious expectations and today remains one of the top 60 PRCA Rodeos in the nation.

Last year’s Rodeo de Santa Fe drew more than 500 contestants, including World Champion cowboys Taos Muncy, Trevor Brazile and JW Harris – a roster seen again this year with more up and coming champions.

Rodeo de Santa Fe is fun for the entire family, with many events for the little ones. The Mutton Bustin’ and youth barrel racers continue to be a crowd favorite of young and old alike, not to mention the carnival midway, concessions, vendors and beer garden.
