Xtreme Bulls Tour
Bull riding has its roots in the 16th century but its popularity has soared in the last 20 years. Cowboys match their riding skills, intuition, and courage against animals weighing 15 times more than they do. Eight seconds is all it takes to get on the scoreboard. But that’s not all. The score is determined by judges who evaluate the both the rider and the bull. At the end of the rodeo season, the top riders compete for the tour championship.
Only a handful of the hundreds of PRCA rodeos qualify to host an Xtreme Bulls competition. Watch this premier even live at the Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo on Friday night.
Saturday · 2pm & 7pm
Two big performances
Family Day Rodeo and A Colorado Rodeo Legend. Each performance lasts about an hour and a half and includes these exciting events: Bareback Riding · Barrel Racing · Bull Riding · Mutton Bustin’ · Saddle Bronc Riding · Steer Wrestling · Team Roping · Tie-down Roping
Sunday · 10am
Slack Performance · Free Admission
Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo is popular with contestants and that means we need additional time for everyone to get in their two allotted rides. Saturday morning is “slack time” when nothing else is scheduled in the arena. The results of slack performances count just like any other PRCA performance. Admission is free but they have all the excitement of any rodeo contest. For example, in 2015, barrel racer Meghan Johnson set an arena record during her Saturday morning slack run.
Sunday · 2pm
Red White & Blue Rodeo

Rodeo Experience Booth
Each year, the Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo Association and the PRCA Hall of Education host the rodeo experience booth. Available to fans of every age, the experience allows interaction with rodeo cowboys, rodeo queens, and volunteers. Try your hand at roping a model steer and see what a bareback rigging feels like. Other rodeo equipment will be on display so you can get an idea of what the life of a rodeo cowboy is all about.
The display features information on the history of the Elizabeth Stampede and the sport of professional rodeo. Learn how rodeo producers and stock contractors keep valuable rodeo animals safe.
