The high school rodeo competition is a must see event for us at the Farm Show. This year we waited til the evening competition. There is no admission to the event (although some of the entrances are reserved for VIPs) so get there early if you want a seat. As you can see from the picture, our seats were rather high; we arrived about 10-15 min early.

For almost an hour and a half we watched high schoolers ride horses around barrels, or ride bulls, or bucking broncos or tie up a goat (girls) or calf (guys). It doesn't look fun, but it is fun to watch. I didn't know rodeo was big in PA until I started watching this. A most different flavor than the mainline horse shows, but just as serious. Of course, the kids have purchased their requisite cowboy hats (in black, blue and pink) to wear to all future rodeo events!
