About the Ranch Rodeo

In the Expo Hall at the Freeman Coliseum/AT&T Center grounds

Ranch Rodeos are a throwback to the old west when neighboring ranches would get together to see whose cowboys were the best riders, the best ropers and generally the toughest hands. It puts teams of real working cowboys in direct competition with one another in events similar to the tasks they face every day such as steer loading, calf branding, roping and tying. Throughout the year, over 200 of the best brush hands, day-working cowboys, ranch hands and cattle crews strive to make the cut for the San Antonio Ranch Rodeo Finals.

Only six teams comprised of five contestants each are invited to participate in the prestigious San Antonio Ranch Rodeo Finals, which assures spectators a “best of the best” ranch rodeo showcase. The teams will compete in six events, such as wild cow milking, the rescue race and the hide race. The team with the highest point total will be crowned the 2020 San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Ranch Rodeo Finals Champion. The coveted titles of “Top Hand” and “Top Horse” will also be awarded to two deserving contestants. The San Antonio Ranch Rodeo Finals is an exceptionally exciting event which has historically drawn a “packed house” of enthusiastic spectators.
