Everything and more on what to expect at the Silver Spurs Southern Showdown

You may be familiar with rodeos in Florida, like the Silver Spurs Rodeo and Monster Bulls, but did you know the Silver Spurs Club is hosting an exciting event your family is sure to love? On Friday, October 1st, and Saturday, October 2nd, the Silver Spurs Riding Club invites you to witness professional cowboys compete in our last event of the year, the Southern Showdown! On the blog, we’ll go over what you can expect during this event and why your family will love it!

Meet professional cowboys
You may watch them on tv, but here you’ll get the chance to see real cowboys in action! During the Southern Showdown, you’ll be able to meet cowboys who ride bred-to-buck bulls or broncs in the three roughstock events; bull riding, bareback riding, and saddle bronc riding.

Meet rodeo royalty
Catch Miss Silver Spurs, Ansley Bo, and her court! Our rodeo queens are more than just pretty faces, watch them fly around the arena carrying sponsor flags and grab a selfie with them later on the concourse. Our rodeo royalty serves as ambassadors to the sport of rodeo and are knowledgeable about the events you will watch. So, if you have any questions during the event, the Silver Spurs Rodeo queens and other visiting queens would love to talk and clear things up for you.

See action-packed events
Bull riding, bareback riding, and saddle bronc riding are fan-favorite events. From strong bucking bulls to high-flying broncs, there’s sure to be plenty of excitement! In between the bareback riding and saddle bronc riding, you’ll also be able to see mutton bustin’, a sheep riding event for kids; children must be between the ages of 4-6 or weigh less than 40 lbs!

Laugh out loud at the man in the can
While most people come to rodeos to see the action-packed rodeo events, one of the things you’ll probably love the most will be our entertainment in between the action. Our rodeo clown is one of the best in the business, and he’s sure to keep you dancing, laughing, and singing all throughout our rodeo! If you’re lucky, he might even join you in the stands or dance with you on the arena dirt.

Share the excitement of the Southern Showdown on Friday, October 1st, and Saturday, October 2nd, at 7:30 pm!
