Thanks to the Stock Yards Rodeo staff for their assistance getting my mobility scooter to our seats since the wheel chair lift was broken. It was July 4th, so there weren't many bucking riders, but lot's of roping events. Thanks again to the staff for acknowledging my relatives who came all the way from Germany to visit the Stock Yard... More

This had bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing. It was a full two hours long, and seemed repetitive and drawn out. It would have been more enjoyable if condensed into an hour or hour and a half. Also, dragging the roped calves around by their necks seems cruel to the uninitiated.

For a decidely east-coast/mid-western family with absolutely no rodeo experience, we were looking forward to attending a rodeo in the Dallas area. We were certainly glad we did. It was definitely an experience; the place certainly knows how to entertain. The building is certainly vintage, which adds to the experience. The rodeo competitions were certainly genuine, and actually was exciting... More

Nice rodeo, but then again I have not much to compare to, as it was my first time visit ever (and the only) to a such happening. I assume, I have been expecting much more, as in the end I wasn't quite impressed. It turned out to be somewhat boring show, with rodeo part being only a small part of... More

The rodeo was filled with thrills and spills! Bull riding, barrel racing and calf roping. Kids were invited into the arena to participate in calf herding. Something for everyone. The announcer acknowledged our group, 509th Vietnam Veterans which was an awesome salute. Thank you.

Family fun all the way. Fast paced and entertaining. I'm not a big rodeo person, but the kids (age 9 and 4) wanted to go. I have to admit it really was pretty good. We sat front and center, but no bad seats. Can't go wrong with cotton candy and ice cream. Only wish they had funnel cake. Also liked... More

The cowboy show was great for families and little kids. I'm biased and lived in CO and went to the BEST RODEO IN THE WORLD in up in WY so I had higher expectations that the average tourist.

This is a good first time Rodeo experience or just a fun evening. For $12.50 a person, don't expect experienced rodeo riders . There is not a bad seat in the house unless you spend extra for the "box" seats. Seated six in a very small cramped area. The long legged guys looked very uncomfortable. At the end of the... More
