How it works:

  • The first 15 rodeo performances make up our Brackets.
  • Each Bracket is made up of 3 rounds or performances where contestants compete in a 3-head back-to-back-to-back series.
  • The top 4 money winners in each event from each Bracket advance to the Semifinals.
  • There are two Semifinals made up of 2 rounds each. Contestants compete in a 2-head back-to-back series. 
  • The top 5 money winners in each event from each Semifinal advance to the Finals.
  • The contestant with the most money accumulated at the end of the Finals Round will be crowned Champion of the San Antonio Rodeo!
