For the Record: Estes Park, Vernal, and Drummond

Cowboy Christmas is the busiest and most-lucrative time of the year in ProRodeo with more than 50 rodeos happening across the U.S. and Canada around Independence Day.

With big money on the line, cowboys bring their best to each arena and often set arena records – so when July rolls around, ‘tis the season to set records.

The following arena records are for the Rooftop Rodeo in Estes Park, Colo., which runs July 5-10; the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo in Vernal, Utah, which runs July 6-8; and the Drummond (Mont.) PRCA Rodeo, which is set for July 9.
