HOW TO ENTER THE SILVER SPURS RODEO
Sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) in 1949, the Silver Spurs Rodeo requires all contestants to have a membership with the PRCA for the following rodeo events: bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, team roping, steer wrestling, and tie-down roping. If you are a barrel racer looking to compete in the Silver Spurs Rodeo, you must be a member of the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA). With your membership card, you will be given a local number that you will need to contact to submit your entry fee to be able to compete in the Silver Spurs Rodeo.
If you are not a member of either of these organizations, you will not be allowed to compete.
HOW TO COMPETE IN OTHER SILVER SPURS RODEO EVENTS
Throughout the year, the Silver Spurs Club will host other rodeo events such as the annual, one-night-only Monster Bulls event and the Boots, Bulls and Barrels event. These events are sanctioned by the Southern States Bull Riding association (SSBR) and require you to fill out and submit their events application form no later than five weeks before our rodeo event or call the SSBR at 941-628-4044 to enter if you’re not a member of the SSBR.
While you do not have to be a member of the SSBR to compete in either of these rodeo events, you will need to have a permit to compete. Even if you are currently a member of the SSBR, you will still need to pay an entry fee, as your monthly dues do not cover or go towards the entry fee, but do give you other perks, such as first draw at the rodeo events you compete in. If you choose not to become a member of the SSBR, you can buy a one-day permit for $20.
