Lynden PRCA Rodeo

2014 is our 10th Annual! August 12th and 13th

 
Mark your calendars for the 2014 Lynden Rodeo, which will be held during the Fair for the first time this year - Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
 
The Lynden PRCA Rodeo began in 2005 and in the years since has hosted many of the biggest names in Rodeo.
 
Professional rodeo action consists of two types of competitions - roughstock events and timed events - and an all-around cowboy crown.

In the roughstock events bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding a contestant's score is equally dependent upon his performance and the animal's performance. To earn a qualified score, the cowboy, while using only one hand, must stay aboard a bucking horse or bull for eight seconds. If the rider touches the animal, himself or any of his equipment with his free hand, he is disqualified.

In bareback riding, and saddle bronc riding, a cowboy must "mark out" his horse; that is, he must exit the chute with his spurs set above the horse's shoulders and hold them there until the horse's front feet hit the ground after the initial jump out of the chute. Failing to do so results in disqualification.

During the regular season, two judges each score a cowboy's qualified ride by awarding 0 to 25 points for the rider's performance and 0 to 25 points for the animal's effort. The judges' scores are then combined to determine the contestant's score. A perfect score is 100. Professional rodeo action consists of two types of competitions - rough stock events and timed events - and an all-around cowboy crown.
 
The timed events feature steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, and barrel racing cowboys and cowgirls at "the other end of the arena" compete against the clock, as well as against each other. A contestant's goal is to post the fastest time in his or her event.
 
Come on out and enjoy the action....YEEHAW!
