College Rodeo: from Show to Sport into your hands. Rodeo has been a long-standing tradition for Tarleton since 1947. Tarleton has won six national championships and 19 individual national championships.
Fort Worth also has a long-standing tradition of rodeo. This year’s Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo (FWSSR) opened in January for the 116th time. One January day about five years ago, I was driving through downtown Fort Worth when I came up behind two riders on horses merrily trotting along on Main Street. I was taken back to my childhood when my family attended the rodeo every year.

Riders with brilliantly colored shirts and sparkling belt buckles paraded in serpentine fashion across the floor of Will Rogers Coliseum displaying flags to show our state and national pride. Hundreds of riders decked out in the fanciest clothes riding well-groomed, show horses paraded by.
