World’s Toughest Rodeo™ returns to Raleigh for one night only! Don’t miss your chance to see America’s original extreme sport in the form of the World’s Toughest Rodeo, featuring top cowboys from around the United States testing their grit in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, and bull riding. While 8-seconds doesn’t seem long, it can feel like an eternity for some of these guys atop a bucking horse or a 2,000-pound bull.

Back by popular demand for the 2014 season is Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey. World’s Toughest Rodeo will feature the wild and western cowboy primate atop his Border Collie mount “Ben” as they round up wild Barbados sheep.  Whiplash has entertained crowds at rodeos and special events all across North American and Europe.

There is something for everyone at the World’s Toughest Rodeo. From top cowboys on the famous World’s Toughest bulls and broncs, to the fast barrel racing cowgirls, to the wild antics of the rodeo clowns – it is the original family entertainment. Prior to event, children are invited to meet some of the cowboys and cowgirls as well as enjoy a free pony ride.*
