If you are in the Oklahoma City area, then you already know that the Oklahoma State Fair is every September. If you are a newbie like we were 4 years ago, we wondered what all of the hype was about. Some travel quite a distance just to attend the fair. Because after-all, the fair really does have a lot to offer, including the PRCA Xtreme Bulls, a Ram Rodeo Series event. I had no idea that Ram Truck has been an avid sponsor of the Rodeo Sport for over 30 years. I learned more about Ram Trucks while working with them through the Rodeo event.
Ram Truck supports two important passions of the American Heritage; rodeos and automobiles. They help pave the way for future generations of cowboys and cowgirls through various scholarships, auctions, and other initiatives, also supporting local charities. They host more than 500 rodeos throughout the year, being a main attraction and drawing large crowds within the community.
Now, I actually owned & drove a Ram truck myself several years ago and they have certainly upgraded their options since then. When the rodeo is coming to your area, make sure to stop by the Ram Truck onsite. Who knows, you may even have an opportunity to register to win one. And who knows, I may actually be in the market for a new Ram truck in the near future. But shhh, don’t tell my husband.
Look at these beautiful Ram trucks! The following pictures were provided for my use in this review.
In working with them, they were kind enough to offer my family tickets to attend in exchange for my honest review.
This was my youngest sons first time to ever attend a Rodeo or XTreme Bull Riding event. He wasn’t real sure what to expect and kept referencing the time that we went to the indoor arena for the Medieval Times. No, this will be much different.
It may sound silly but I love Rodeo’s. No, not just because of the cowboys, although that view never hurts.
When my husband and I were just dating, the first movie date that we went on was to watch “8 Seconds”. Now you probably already know that it is a movie based on a true story of a bull-rider. If you haven’t seen it you really need to watch it. My cowboy and I have been married now for 20+ years.
I loved being able to experience my sons excitement and interest in the bull riding for the first time. He watched intently while the cowboys were behind the chutes. Asking what they were doing, then watched in awe as they rode the bull. I was explaining to him that the brave cowboys would ride the bulls, hopefully riding until the 8 second buzzer. Then they may get bucked off, jump up and dust off just to do it all over again. This gave a whole new meaning to “pull up them boot straps and dust your-self off”.
He also loved the rodeo clowns. They were able to keep the attention of the audience and make everyone laugh. My son also watched as the rodeo clowns helped distract the bulls.
Rodeo and Bull Riding is great entertainment for the entire family.
We have friends that have 6 boys. The older boys are already involved in rodeo and bull riding. I think it is a great way to teach competition with the western heritage.
There was even a concert after the XTreme Bull Rides. We only stayed for part of it since it was late and we have a little one.
I would highly recommend the Rodeo and XTreme Bull Riding events. Our family enjoyed the evening out. The entertainment is good for any age. We even had quite a few good laughs too.
Thank you again to the Ram Rodeo Series & the PRCA Xtreme Bull for a wonderful family friendly evening event.
If you are planning to attend an event like this call ahead & ask what area is best for parking, so that you can park as close to the building as possible. Otherwise you may park on the complete opposite side of the building.
Also, if the event is being held in conjunction w/ a fair, etc. then allow yourself plenty of time for traffic.
Last, but not least, wear comfortable shoes for the long walk. I wore my boots, of course! Luckily my boots are well broken-in.
The following are pictures that I took while attending the event. I wish I had been able to take more pictures, but I was busy enjoying the event.
Do you own &/or drive a Ram truck? If you could choose any color Ram truck, what color would you choose? When is the next rodeo coming to your area?
