For the 103rd time, the Red Bluff Round-Up is kicking off and will feature some of the biggest names across the rodeo world. This year athletes will come from across the country to claim their share of the $350,000 up for grabs.


In the roughstock events, it is a straightforward rodeo. The highest-marked ride will be crowned the Red Bluff champion. A year ago, it took 90 points to win the bareback and bull riding while you had to be 87 to win the Saddle Bronc riding.

In timed events, athletes will compete in three rounds before the Top 12 advance to the Finals with the Average winner being crowned champion of Red Bluff.


Performance 1 (Friday, April 19)

You’ll have a chance to see plenty of big names across each event during Performance 1. In bareback riding, you can watch 2023 World Champion Jess Pope compete against Tanner Aus, Garrett Shadbolt, Bronc Marriott, Jacek Frost, and many others.
