The Silver Spurs Rodeo story began in 1941, when pioneering ranchers gathered in Tallahassee to ride in a parade honoring Florida's newly elected governor and received statewide attention for their impressive and entertaining riding skills. Now one of the largest rodeos east of the Mississippi, the Silver Spurs Rodeo is annually ranked as one of the top-50 events sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Ticket holders can check out eight different riding and roping events, all of which test a cowperson's strength, character, and readiness to be bested by an overly emotional beast and a dust-covered clown. In the dangerous and exciting bull-riding event, riders attempt to ride a bucking bull for eight seconds, and tough and talented cowgirls participate in barrel-racing competitions, in which each contestant rides at full speed around large barrels, making sure to hit the electronic clock upon entering and exiting. Eyes can also feast on quadrille performances, which can best be described as square dancing on horseback. Watch couples seated atop prancing horses that weave in and out of different formations to create eye-pleasing patterns while kicking up dust piles that resemble John Wayne.
