Cody Stampede: Preview, Format, And How to Watch

Wyoming’s second highest paying rodeo takes center stage during the Fourth of July

Cody Stampede 2024

The Summer Run continues as the calendar turns to July. The Cody Stampede kicks off July 1 and will feature the top athletes in the world in its 105th edition.

A year ago, winners earned between $7,000 and $12,000 for winning the rodeo and Stetson Wright took the All-Around title with over $13,000 earned in total.

Here is a look at the format and what to watch for from Cody, Wyoming.


The Cody Stampede keeps it simple, it’s one of the richest one-headers in the PRCA. All athletes have one shot at it and the highest score or fastest run will take home the title and the big payday that comes with it.


Could this be the weekend Keenan Hayes is finally caught in the PRCA Bareback World Standings? Hayes holds a lead of $10,000 over Leighton Berry and $7,000 over Coop Cooke. Cooke is scheduled to compete in the first performance while Hayes and Berry will compete on Tuesday night.

Josh Frost is putting the pressure on World No. 1 Creek Young in the Bull Riding. Frost has been on fire of late and is now No. 2 in the PRCA World Standings and just $20,000 out of first place. July 4 will be a great performance to watch the bull riding with the Top 4 in the standings competing. Young and Frost will be joined by No. 3 Clayton Sellars and No. 4 Hayes Weight in the performance.

Hailey Kinsel is coming off a win in Reno and will be competing on July 4 alongside Wenda Johnson in the performance. World No. 1 Leslie Smalygo will compete in the slack on Wednesday morning alongside stars like Stevi Hillman, Jordon Briggs, Summer Kosel, and 2023 World Champion Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi.
