It was a rainy Monday night at the Greeley Stampede for the Tough Enough to Wear Pink rodeo. With over 6,800 fans in attendance, the Stampede Arena was filled with pink to raise cancer awareness and support the Banner Health Mammography Fund. The Greeley Stampede welcomed rodeo fans today to the fourth day of the PRCA Rodeo Series sponsored by Cargill and with today’s performance presented by Banner Health.

 

Listed as a Top-25 Pro Rodeo according to purse size, the Stampede is famous for having a topnotch performance. The Greeley Stampede Rodeo features eight exciting events during every performance: Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Team Roping, Steer Wrestling, Tie-Down Roping, Barrel Racing, Mutton Bustin, and Bull Riding.
