Back When They Bucked

PRCA “Back When They Bucked” is back for the second year. This All-Day Rodeo is bringing an extra punch in 2022. We are partnering with the NAJA Shriners of Deadwood for a two-day, all day rodeo event. We are looking forward to hosting this elite event again in the unique, rustic, old west setting of the Days of 76 Event Complex, Deadwood, SD, Memorial Weekend, May 29 & 30, 2022. Back When They Bucked is produced by Western Legacy Foundation, presented by Brink Constructors, Inc. and is designed to raise funds to support the foundation and its efforts which include college scholarships, support of community organizations, programs, and projects that enhance services and education to the public.

The full day of action on May 29th will kick off with the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) Ladies Breakaway event. You will witness some of the fastest roping you have ever seen. The ladies will be competing for a spot in the short round that will be held during the PRCA Xtreme Bronc Riding event which will be held in the afternoon. The PRCA Xtreme Saddle Bronc Match will begin in the afternoon. This is a Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) sanctioned event featuring “extreme bronc riding.” Twenty-four cowboys will compete in the long go-round with the eight highest scores advancing to the short-round. Short-round cowboys will be vying for the title and prize money. Winnings at this event will count towards their earnings to advance to the Wrangler National Finals.

This full day of action will feature live music with vendors and activities to enjoy!
