Reliving America’s frontier days has been a trying task ever since Hollywood Westerns fell out of vogue and Spaghetti Westerns proved too fattening. Go west with this GrouponLive deal to see the Professional Roughstock Fresno Invitational at the Save Mart Center. For $25, you get one ticket for seating in sections 108, 109, 123, or 124 on Saturday, June 2, at 7 p.m. (up to a $52.55 value, including all fees).
At Professional Roughstock events, a mere eight seconds is all it takes for a rider to become a champion or fall face-first in the dirt. 12 competitors in three disciplines take center stage during the Fresno Invitational, vying for high scores in riding technique, the bucking performance of their steeds, and successfully spelling "hootenanny." Bareback, saddle-bronc, and bull-riding competitions round out the night's farm festivities, during which the cowboys gracefully anticipate the motions of their steeds to complete their eight-second rides.
