Some of the toughest things about breaking into a rodeo association are getting to know the contractors, the arenas and the other competitors. On the Rodeo Road helps bridge the gap between those on the road now and those who wish they were.
This site features commentary and interviews from Amber Mostoller, Ashley Whyland, Bryan Massey, Scott NeSmith, Spencer Turner and Tracey Goodman. After each rodeo they hit, they do a review of the ground, their runs/rides, the hospitality, etc. It really helps you keep up with the people at the top of the IPRA leader boards.
Not only does it help keep you up-to-date with who is winning what, it lets rodeo fans get to know the personalities and points of view of the people who are out on the road winning every week.
I really love the interview questions that ask the barrel racers/bronc riders for personal experiences or funny stories while on the way to/from the rodeo, because often times the best stories happen outside of the pen. And since so much of what we do in the arena is affected by what’s on our minds outside of it, this part of the interview is crucial!
