The international cowboys have arrived in Rio Preto and they are ready to rodeo.
It is set to begin tonight and run through until Sunday the 10th and feature contestants from 5 different countries around the world. The bull riders will be competing for a total of $15,000 over the 5 day rodeo the bronc riders, bareback riders and barrel racers will be competing for about $5,000. All of the expenses for these contestants are paid for in a type of rodeo format resembling the biggest ones in Canada and the United States.
The International Contestants will compete against 30 Brazilians in the first 4 days of competition. The final day will feature the top 5 Brazilians against the International Cowboys in a shoot out where the winner takes home $3,000 USD. It will be a very great event featuring some of Canada and the United State’s top Contestants. Good Luck to everyone competing!

Australia has some competitors going as well but I’m not sure who all they are. I will know by the end of the day and also have reults posted when I get them. Do you think Brazil will take home the top prizes? Or will the international competitors prevail on foreign turf?
Here is a video of the bull riding from a the Rio Preto Rodeo show along with some other places as well. I haven’t seen this manby 90’s in a row on many other videos before so I hope you all like this one!
