About the Youth Rodeo

Since its debut in 2014, the Youth Rodeo has become the fastest-growing, most successful horse event at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. With over 1,000 entries annually, the competition features rodeo’s brightest young athletes.

Events take place over three days and include Pole Bending, Goat Tying, Barrel Racing, Tie-Down Roping, Breakaway Roping, Ribbon Roping, and Team Roping.

Rodeo events are popular throughout Texas, but the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is the first major stock show to offer a comprehensive competition for youth contestants. The Youth Rodeo celebrates western events that are exciting for both contestants and the general public.

New for 2017: Following the Team Roping on Wednesday, February 15, 2017, be sure to stick around for the first-ever Youth Rodeo Finals. The top 10 contestants in the 16-18 age division of each event will compete head-to-head for a chance at a $10,000 scholarship. For more information on the Youth Rodeo Finals, please refer to the Premium List.
