Fans of all ages can enjoy edge-of-your-seat action, eight seconds at a time at Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo. The night will feature fan-favorite events: bull riding, saddle bronc riding, and bareback riding with the top two riders competing a second time in the thrilling “Winner Take All…Showdown Round,” as well as women's barrel racing.

In addition to outstanding competition, fans will witness local young contestants in mutton bustin’ action as well as world-class specialty entertainment. Professional bull jumper Emmanuel Lataste returns to the Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo line-up as he displays his unbelievable athletic talent and nerves of steel. Bull jumping, a sport derived from a Southwestern French tradition called “Course Landaise,” will include more than 15 jumps and maneuvers over a charging Mexican fighting bull. Additionally, Ryder Kiesner, an award-winning comedy barrel man will join the tour this year. Kiesner is a four-time world champion trick roper, two-time world champion all-around Western performer and a two-time world champion gun spinner.
