You say yer family is hankerin’ for some bull ridin’? Come to the Rough Stock Rodeo at the Sears Center Arena, Saturday May 3, and stay at the nearby and affordable Elk Grove Chicago Hotel!
The Rough Stock Rodeo features thirty-six of the best professional rodeo competitors in the world! See them perform in the three toughest rodeo disciplines: Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc and Bull Riding. Bare Back Riding is an eight second thrill ride on a horse in which the rider keeps one hand in the rigging and one hand in the air. Rodeo’s classic event, Saddle Bronc Riding, also a mere eight seconds long, requires the cowboy to keep both of his feet in the stirrups, one hand on the horse’s reins and one hand in the air. Bull Riding is an eight second ride of terror, as the cowboy rides bareback on a bucking bull and tries to hang on for dear life. The twelve cowboys in each of the three Rough Stock Rodeo categories are narrowed down to four, for the championship round.
The spacious Sears Centre Arena is located at 5333 Prairie Stone Parkway, in Hoff man Estates. For more information, call (847) 649-2222.
