Coming in late on this one. As far as I know, you have to be 18 to compete professionally in any rodeo event (PRCA, PBR, CBR, etc). They were making a big deal about one of the calf ropers at the PRCA finals- he didn't turn 18 until half way through the season and still qualified for the finals. Same with one of the riders I saw Friday night at the CBR Finals. There are college and high school rodeo teams in the west, tho.storyteller said:Are there any age limits on it ?
Me, too, Laura. His smile ain't half bad either. LOLlabby said:Ryan Dirteater is 19 and part Cherokee from OK. I love his name.
We have both here, the HS finals are in Lincoln and brings in a lot of bussiness for us. Nice bunch a kids, don't have any problems with them when in town, not something I can say for all the BB and FB HS kids.MicksMom said:There are college and high school rodeo teams in the west, tho.
