All of the ProRodeo athletes who finished Top 10 in the 2020 PRCA and WPRA World Standings have accepted their invitations to compete at The American Rodeo, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, March 6-7, 2021.

“The American Rodeo is so much more than just a rodeo or a payday for cowboys,” said Randy Bernard, CEO of The American Rodeo. “The money is so substantial; I always like to say it’s where dreams come true. We have seen cowboys and cowgirls walk away with over $1 million in one day and that is what our sport should be about. The story lines, the drama, the passion...it all comes out in one weekend. It truly is an amazing event that I look forward to every year.”

The American Rodeo is known as the world’s richest weekend in western sports due to its tremendous prize offering of $2.3 million. Qualifying events are held across the country, throughout the calendar year, as ropers and riders hope to compete and make it to The American Rodeo Semi-Finals and Finals. The finals then bring the top athletes in the world and the underdogs who advance from The American Rodeo Semi-Finals together to battle for the biggest single, life-changing paycheck of their lives. The Top 10 in each event are invited to forgo the qualifiers and head straight to the finals at AT&T.


“The american is like no other,” said Shad Mayfield, Reigning Tie-Downing World Champion and 2020 American Champion. “It’s been an amazing feeling to get to compete at the highest level against the best for the highest amount of money and i’m looking forward to it this year.”
