Since 1974 the Canadian Finals Rodeo has drawn fans to Edmonton to see some of rodeo’s best riders and stock compete in a heart-bucking display of cowboy skills. Today’s Groupon gets viewers into one of the final two days of the rodeo, when tensions are high and rivalries over trumped records and biggest hats are fierce. The event’s most physically demanding competition, bareback riding, requires cowboys to spur bucking, rearing steeds while holding on with a single hand. A menu of classic rodeo events includes steer wrestling, team roping, and tie-down roping, skills cowboys once used to collect cows that broke curfew. Modern cowboys satiate their desire for danger in a bull-riding contest that sets them on the backs of furious bulls for eight seconds. Cowgirls showcase their speed and agility in barrel races, in which they ride trained stallions around obstacles in tight figure eights.
