The excitement of the unexpected is the cornerstone of the sport of
rodeo. Any second, something unpredictable can happen. It's an
age-old conflict between man and beast. Cowboy gladiators take on
nearly wild cattle and horses in the bull, bareback and saddle
bronc riding and try to best unruly calves and steers in team and
tie-down roping and steer wrestling. It's a thrill Payson has been
providing audiences from near and far for 121 years.
