Here is a description of the RAM Rodeo:
The RAM Rodeo Tour brings along the action-packed, thrilling and entertaining sport of rodeo! With exciting events just as seen on TV or at the Calgary Stampeded including barrel racing, bareback and saddle bronc riding, and the world’s most dangerous sport, bull riding! With more competitors than ever before, the RAM Rodeo Tour provides a first rate chance for cowboys and cowgirls to win prizes, money and championship titles. More than 200 cowboys and cowgirls travel from across the province of Ontario, Quebec, Western Canada and the United States to compete at each rodeo and do what they love! They travel to each rodeo to introduce the great sport to different communities and to put on the best shows! These performances are live and there are never two shows alike, so you’ll never know what exciting moment you’ll get to see!
