San Angelo PFH

The final leg of the Texas Swing kicks off this week on The Cowboy Channel with the San Angelo Rodeo. San Angelo will pay nearly $700,000 across all events.


San Angelo is a simple rodeo to follow. In roughstock events, there is one Long Round where the 12 highest scores advance to the Finals. The Finals are a one-header where the champion is crowned based on the two-head Average from the Finals and Long Round.

In timed events, there are two Long Rounds featuring the same athletes. The 12 fastest times two-head advances to the Finals, where the winner is determined based on a three-head Average.
