Three PRCA Rodeo Performances at 2016 Expo

The seven standard competitions at a rodeo are Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Tie Down Roping,
Team Roping and Barrel Racing. The first three events - Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding and Bull Riding - are
considered 'roughstock' events. The cowboy's score is equally dependent on not only his performance, but also the
animal's performance. The other competitions are timed events, which means the cowboy (or cowgirl for barrel racing)
compete against the clock, as well as each other. See 'em all at the Minnesota Horse Expo rodeos!

Cavallo Equestrian Arts Performances Cancelled
It is with regret that the Minnesota Horse Expo announces that Cavallo Equestrian Arts will not be bringing their tent show to the 2016 Expo. Due to a recent transport accident which damaged their big top tent and equipment, Cavallo Equestrian Arts feel they have no choice but to cancel. We will miss having this talented troupe of performers at the 2016 Minnesota Horse Expo and wish them success in rebuilding.

Come for the horses, vendors, clinicians and rodeos, then stay for the country music!
