The Rodeo

Entering it's fifth season, the Hell on Wheels Rodeo and Chuck Wagon Dinner Series Features an open rodeo format. That means anyone can pay the entry fee and compete in nine different rodeo events. The 2023 season featured a total payout to cowboys and cowgirls of more than $69,500. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors most events have $400 per rodeo added money. ($800 for team roping and $200 for novice bulls).

The rodeo features rough stock and timed events including Bareback and Saddle Bronc Riding, Breakaway, Tie Down and Team Roping, Steer Wrestling, Barrel Racing, Novice and Standard Bull Riding. The rodeo begins at 7 pm sharp with the Grand Entry and National Anthem. If you've never attended the Hell on Wheels Rodeo, the performance will last about 90 minutes. Following the performance slack will be run featuring roping and barrel racing contestants who were not chosen for the performance. All events are approved by the Wyoming Rodeo Association and count in their standings. A WRA card is not required to participate in our rodeo.

At the September 6th rodeo, the high money winner in each event over the course of the summer will be awarded their championship buckle. Contestants who win money in two or more events are in the running for the All-Around Championship Saddle which will be awarded to the high money winner.

In the spirit of Western Hospitality we welcome visiting rodeo committees who are interested in attending or learning more about the Hell on Wheels Rodeo and Chuck Wagon Dinner to send us an email with your details and we will be happy extend a warm welcome to your group.
