Two rodeo families are back together in Colorado Springs. 

After three year on their own, The Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo will be sanctioned by the PRCA once again. 

This collaboration between the two rodeo powers in Southern Colorado brings the competition, fan experience and prize money up to a new level for the 78th running of the rodeo at the Norris-Penrose Events Center. 

"The Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo has tradition that is deeply-rooted in the PRCA’s hometown of Colorado Springs, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them," George Taylor, PRCA CEO said in a press release.

The eight finalists will all earn paychecks, $15,000 going to the champion of the finals. 

"This rodeo offers the contestants tremendous hospitality, a packed crowd to compete in front of, and an opportunity to earn a large payday."

The rodeo runs July 11-14th.
