The first recorded rodeo is somewhat mysterious

Believe it or not, there is no record of the first official rodeo anywhere. While most recognized rodeos and rodeo organizations were established in the first part of the 20th century, there are some records dating back to the mid-1800s. 

Wade Leslie was the first bull rider to score a perfect 100, and no one has done it since

As many school-aged kids will understand, earning a perfect score can be difficult. Same goes for bull riding!

The official state sport of both Texas and Wyoming is Rodeo

It may not seem like a big surprise when we say that Texas’ state sport
is rodeo, but did you know it’s also Wyoming’s?
