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 four days and include Pole Bending, Goat Tying, Barrel Racing, Tie-Down Roping, Breakaway Roping, Ribbon Roping, and Team Roping. In order to build upon the success of the Youth Rodeo, in 2018 we offered Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, and Steer Wrestling. 

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.
