The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association has awarded its annual Remuda award to the St. Paul Rodeo.
According the Wrangler Network, “The PRCA’s annual Remuda Awards go to the stock contracting firm and rodeo committee that provide the best, most consistent pen of bucking horses, creating the best opportunities for contestants to score well.”
The award was also a first for the rodeo, which has been part of the PRCA since 1936.
“This is a cool deal, and it is especially great for us because it is very difficult over the Fourth of July to put together a great set of bucking horses,” said Cindy Schonholtz, general manager of the St. Paul Rodeo. “Our livestock boss, Matt Weishoff, works with our main stock contractor, Tim Bridwell, to get a set of horses through the various stock contractors we use. For a town of 425 (people) we have the 10th-most added money of regular-season rodeos, and it is a source of pride for our community and for all of our members and volunteers. We will certainly be happy to bring that award home from Vegas for all of our hard work.”
The 2019 St. Paul Rodeo was July 2-6 and paid out $375,112.
The Remuda Award winners will be honored at the PRCA Awards Banquet at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Dec. 4.
