World's Toughest Rodeo

Saturday, January 11, 2014

World’s Toughest Rodeo will bring the top cowboys to test their grit in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, and bull riding to Nationwide Arena on Saturday, January 11, 2014.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Country recording artist Josh Thompson will perform immediately following the World’s Toughest Rodeo.

When the World’s Toughest Rodeo surveys their fans, the number one most requested cowboy is Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey. So back by popular demand for the 2014 season, World’s Toughest Rodeo will feature the wild and western cowboy primate atop his Border Collie mount “Ben” as they round up wild Barbados sheep. Whiplash earns his name, every time his trusty mount darts to head off the wild mutton! Whiplash has entertained crowds at rodeos, ball games and special events. He has also appeared on ESPN, Good Morning America and The Today Show.

There is something for everyone – from cowboys on the famous World’s Toughest bulls and bronc, to the fast barrel racing cowgirls, to the wild antics of the rodeo clowns - It’s the World’s Toughest Rodeo – it is the original family entertainment. Kids are always ˝ price (except Gold Buckle) and can come early for a free Pony ride before the show.
