RODEO: West of the Pecos Rodeo set to host first performance

PECOS One of the most historic rodeos in the country is making its return, giving competitors from various parts of the world a chance to move up the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) rankings.

The West of the Pecos Rodeo will host its first performance at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Buck Jackson Arena.

The competition has been around since 1883 and is one of the PRCA’s top 40 prize-money rodeos, which attracts attention from far and wide.

After having to cancel its showing in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rodeo returned in 2021 to a full arena for its opening night.

The rodeo has four performances scheduled, hosting its final 2022 showing at 8 p.m. Saturday.
