“The roar is louder, and riding there for the first time, boy, you just feel like a million bucks. You got so much adrenaline running through you, you could share it with a football team.” ~ Deb Greenough on his first time riding at the Home of Champions Rodeo

Contribute to Our Success!

This year, the Red Lodge Home of Champions Rodeo Association is celebrating 95 years of supporting the western way of life and the rodeo industry. At the PRCA  in Las Vegas this last December, the Red Lodge Rodeo was voted the Medium Size Rodeo of the Year! We simply could not do what we do every year without the generous support of the community and patrons like you. You all have played an integral part in the success of our rodeo to be one of the top 60 PRCA rodeos in the world in addition to adding an Xtreme Bulls event. We look forward to being part of the PRCA Tour again next year which includes many incentives for rodeo athletes and the community including our rodeo televised on the Cowboy Channel app.

Along with providing a great rodeo while continually adding to the overall purse for the athletes, the rodeo committee has set forth a vision to continually improve the rodeo grounds. Over the years, we have slowly replaced one aging wooden grandstand after another to improve the longevity of our grounds. Our next major project will be to secure funding to refurbish the covered wooden grandstand. Our long term goal is to finish this project by our 100 year anniversary in 2029.

We appreciate your time and consideration in donating to help the Red Lodge Home of Champions Rodeo reach its goals!
