For bull riding fanatics there is one performance at the Rodeo made for you! At Xtreme Bulls this Saturday at 1 p.m. the entire performance is centered on bulls where you can catch the best bull riding action. The top 10 bull riders who advance to Semifinals I and the 10 bull riders that advance to Semifinals II will automatically qualify for the Xtreme Bulls event. These bull riders have the chance to win a piece of the $100,000 payout.
For even more excitement, we have partnered with Bull Fighters Only to put on a Freestyle Bullfight intertwined with Xtreme Bulls. Bullfighters (sometimes referred to as Rodeo clowns, but known as bullfighters in Rodeo terms) will be put to the test for 70 seconds to impress the judges for their agility and style in maneuvering a relentless 2,000 pound bull. It will feature the best in BFO battling for their share of a $25,000 purse – half of which will go to the winner.
The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo takes place February 8-25, 2018. Established in 1949, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, winner of the PRCA Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year for an unprecedented 13 consecutive times, has grown to be one of the largest and most prestigious single events in the city, with over 2 million visitors entering the grounds each year. The success of the organization is attributed to over 6,000 volunteers who give countless hours to the organization. With community, donor and volunteer support, the organization has donated over $186 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, auctions, a calf scramble program and show premiums.
