Legacy of Ranch Rodeo on display at Rodeo Rapid City


News Staff - February 2, 2020

RAPID CITY, SD - For Sutton Rodeo’s, it’s rodeo 365 days of the year…..all day long.  It’s also called cowboyin’ and every ranch knows what that means and does it.  Back in the day, they even made a competition out of it….which is how organized rodeo got its start.

The history of rodeo begins with the local ranch hands and cowboys competing with and against each other for bragging rights.  The pride in competition was only surpassed by the quality of the horses they rode to compete on.  Ranch and rodeo fans can cheer on their favorite teams at the Sutton’s Ranch Horse performance,  Monday, Feb. 3rd. 

The preliminary round starts at 10:00 am in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Barnett Arena. 

The format will consist of four man teams competing in three preliminary events, $500 paid to 1st place in each event and the chance to advance to the finals.  The top teams will advance to the final round Feb. 3rd, at 7:30 pm.

 A Calcutta for the Final’s teams will be held in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center’s Cowboy Bar at 5:00 p.m.  The finals will consist of three progressive events with the top three places (1st-$4000, 2nd-$3000, 3rd-$2000) being paid out in the overall average. 

There will be one elite competitor awarded the title of Top Hand and one horse awarded the title of Top Steed.

“Ranch Rodeo is a style that goes back to the ranch cowboys having competition with each other,” observes Steve Sutton.   “It brings everyone to town to show off their every-day skills…the best ranch is going to win.”
