Annual California Salinas Rodeo 2016
Each July, the West comes alive in Salinas with the California Rodeo Salinas at the Salinas sports complex. The California Rodeo Salinas is the largest rodeo in California. One of the most prestigious stops on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuit and part of the Wrangler ProRodeo Summer Tour, the California Rodeo Salinas attracts more than 700 top-ranked professional cowboys and cowgirls competing for over $400,000 in prize money annually. In addition, eight of California’s greatest young horsewomen will compete for the title of Miss California Rodeo Salinas. It features three rough stock events (bareback riding, saddle bronco riding and bull riding) and three timed events (tie-down roping, steer wrestling and team roping), all PRCA-sanctioned.
