Come join us April 28-30 with three ProRodeo performances held during the Minnesota Horse Expo on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The athletic talent of our bucking horses, bulls and saddle horses is award winning. Each performance features the seven standard rodeo events: bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding. With world-class roughstock and western entertainment invite your friends and family to attend.

The excitement and energy of our Barnes PRCA Rodeo during the MN Horse Expo is great family entertainment. Rodeo fans experience America's original sport at its best.  Rodeo is one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the country. The popularity of the sport has as strong sense of tradition and value. In addition to the animal athletes and rodeo contestants - the rodeo clown extraordinaire
Keith Isley will perform. Isley travels with his equine companions Badger and Punkin.  Badger is a 13-year-old palomino gelding who performs tricks at the rodeo.  Punkin is a 28" miniature horse who is part of Isley's entourage. Isley is the most decorated rodeo entertainer with 19 awards from the PRCA. He won the triple crown of rodeo comedians back to back in 2010 and 2011 - The PRCA Comedy Act of the Year, Coors "Man in the Can" and PRCA Clown of the Year.

Patriotism is at the core of Barnes PRCA Rodeo productions. The Iowa-based stock contracting company is known for paying respect to the United States Armed Forces during their rodeo performances. American flags flown over the bucking chutes and during the grand entry are signature elements at Barnes PRCA Rodeos across the country. 

His awards include:
PRCA Comedy Act of the Year (2009-2011, 2013)
Coors "Man in the Can" (2006, 2009-2012)
PRCA "Clown of the Year" (2006-2011)
Dodge Circuit Finals (2010)
First Frontier Circuit Finals (2010)
NFR "Barrel Man" (2009)
PRCA "Specialty Act of the Year" (2006)

What will you see at the Minnesota Horse Expo PRCA Rodeo?

The seven standard competitions at a rodeo are Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding,Tie Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, 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 the Barrel Racing) compete against the clock, as well as each other.
