National Western Stock Show and Rodeo
One of the world's largest cattle shows, this annual event is one of Denver's biggest attractions. The stock show includes horse shows, auctions for horses and cattle, and many different educational displays about farm life. The animals on display include llamas, buffalo, goats, and miniature and draft horses. There are many specialty acts, including a contest to see who can shear a sheep the fastest. Admission is charged for the stock show and the rodeo separately.
We moved to Denver in Jan 2006 from Memphis, and since my daughter (10) loves horses we thought it would be neat to take her to the show and rodeo, especially since it's such a big deal for Denver each year. It was really nice and a lot of fun for our money. We never had anything like this back home and are so happy it comes here every year. We will be going every year it continues to come!
Every year we go as a family. We love every aspect of the Stock Show. From walking in; passing the bulls and broncs out front to walking around the stock yards.
We see the Rodeo, take in all of the exhibits, even though our youngest is now 15, we still enjoy the childrens floor. We go check out the kids 4H animals and wish those who are available good luck and wrap the evening up down where the cattle are. We enjoy seeing who the big winners are and so forth.
The Stock Show reminds us of what America is all about.
Thanks so much,
I like the beautiful Mexican rodeo that Gerardo "Jerry" Diaz performes. All of his acts. Escaramuza Charrra Las Potrancas is a team of very beautiful and colorful young females riding side saddle and doing a drill. They are awsome!! The dancing horses that Jerry has are expectacular! All of the bullriding and broncriding is exciting as welll!! I can't say enough about the show!!
