National Western Invitational Ranch Rodeo <p>What is a Ranch Rodeo? Ranch rodeos consist of teams of cowboys or cowgirls from different ranches competing against each other in events that mimic their everyday work on the ranch.</p> <p>Ranch rodeos differ from the more common “Pro Rodeo” in several ways. For starters, the contestants are not professional rodeo cowboys — they usually are full-time ranch hands who compete in ranch rodeos for fun or bragging rights. Also, the events in ranch rodeos are similar to the tasks commonly performed on a ranch, and the equipment and tack used are the same as those used during everyday ranch life. And finally, instead of competing as individuals, the contestants in ranch rodeos compete as a team representing the ranch they work for.<br />National Western’s Ranch Rodeo consists of 8 teams competing in four events: Sorting, Double Mugging, Cut &amp; Brand and Wild Cow Milking.</p> 4655 Humboldt St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

National Western $20,000 RAM Invitational Freestyle Reining <p>Beautiful spins and powerful stops mingled with original costumes and musical themes make up the $20,000 RAM Invitational Freestyle Reining, one of National Western Stock Show’s crowd favorites. Reining was developed from the moves a cow horse is asked to perform during regular ranch duties. Competitive patterns include spins, stops, rollbacks, speed variations, and directional changes. However, unlike standard reining classes which require competitors to perform a specified pattern, freestyle reining allows exhibitors to use costumes, music, themes, props and special effects lighting to add to their presentation.</p> <p>The National Western Stock Show invites the nation’s top reiners, making the $20,000 RAM Invitational Freestyle Reining unique to any horse show in the world. Even if this is your first horse show, you’re sure to love reining’s elegance and athleticism.</p> 4655 Humboldt St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

National Western $10,000 Monarch Casino Gambler’s Choice Jumper Stake <p>A show jumping competition with a rock-and-roll atmosphere, the Gambler’s Choice Jumper Stake features high level jumpers and a uniquely designed course to produce a high-energy performance in an exciting InIt2WinIt series qualifier! Each rider jumps the course of 10 to 14 fences starting at 4-feet 6-inches in height. Each fence carries a point value based on its degree of difficulty. The riders decide their own path around the course but can only jump a fence twice, either direction, and only if it’s still standing.<br /><br />The daring nature of the horse and rider pair comes into play as the faster, higher jumping horses can get around the course faster and cleaner, thus accumulating the most points. Final scores are determined by adding the total points and subtracting any penalties for exceeding the time allowed. Once the initial jump course is finished and points tabulated, each rider then has the option of taking the Joker fence with the risk of gaining a large number of points or losing those points with a knockdown.</p> 4655 Humboldt St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

National Western $40,000 Grand Prix <p>Pronounced “gron pree”, the term translates from the French as “big prize”. The formal night event of the National Western Stock Show, the total prize money is more than $40,000, drawing the top horses and riders from across North America. Grand Prix jumping requires absolute cooperation and teamwork between horse and rider. It takes a special animal and a special person to compete at this level of competition. You will not see any better show jumping competition than the Grand Prix.</p> <p>Each competitor jumps one round over a course of 10 to 14 jumps from 4-feet 6-inches in height and higher. The top horses accumulating the least number of faults are required to jump a second round over a course of 8 to 12 jumps, raised in height from the previous round. The spreads (width) of all jumps ranges from five to six feet. Final scores are determined by adding the total faults incurred in both rounds and adding any penalties for exceeding the time allowed in either or both rounds. In the event of a tie for first place, a jump-off will occur, with time deciding the winner should there be another tie.</p> 4655 Humboldt St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
