Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo: Preview, Format and How to Watch

The final weekend before 100 Rodeos in 100 Days includes a PRCA Playoff Rodeo in Utah

Dinosaur Roundup 2024

The Cowboy Channel heads to Vernal, Utah for the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo this weekend in what marks the final weekend before 100 Rodeos in 100 Days.

A year ago, we saw one of the highest-marked bull rides of the season with Braden Richardson’s 93.5 point ride. There are sure to be more fireworks this year from Utah.

FORMAT

The format in Vernal is a simple one to follow with athletes getting one go at it in each event on both the roughstock and timed event side.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

The daysheets are loaded with stars throughout each event. In bareback riding, World. No. 1 Keenan Hayes is scheduled to compete on Friday night. Hayes has a slim lead of just over $1,000 over both Leighton Berry and Coop Cooke. Leighton Berry will ride on Saturday while Cooke isn’t making the trip to Utah.

In barrel racing, 2023 World Champion Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi will ride on Saturday night as she looks to defend her World Title. Pozzi Tonozzi is currently outside of the Top 30 in the world and will be looking to make a big jump in the standings during the Summer Run, just like she did in 2023 when she won more than $150,000 from June on.

Winners of the rodeo will head into Reno week with an extra $4,000 in their pocket and plenty of momentum heading into 100 Rodeos in 100 Days.
