Frontier Rodeo Company – 61st Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Recap

Monday, December 16, 2019

The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo brings the Western Way of Life to Las Vegas each December.   Rodeo fans, cowboys, cowgirls, stock contractors, rodeo committees and animal athletes rally together to make this the most exciting 10 days in rodeo.  We had a great 2019 rodeo season and all the hard work, long hours and miles & miles on the road paid off.  We were blessed to have 19 head of livestock selected to the Wrangler NFR.  On Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada we were named the 2019 PRCA Stock Contractor of the Year for the 5th year in a row.  Owner, Jerry Nelson said he was “Blown Away”.  On Thursday, December 5th at the WPRA Banquet, Frontier Rodeo Co. was recognized as the 2019 WPRA Stock Contractor of the Year.  Medicine Woman, a 4X PRCA Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year was voted 2019 Reserve Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year, rank Saddle Bronc in the 10th round of the NFR and finished 2nd (3-way tie) for the Saddle Bronc of the Wrangler NFR.  Frontier animals took cowboys to the pay window seven times this past week and won a total of $120,153.83 on our four-legged athletes.  It was the Bareback riders and three 90-point rides that took Rodeo Manager Heath Stewart to the South Point Stage three times to receive a go-round buckle from Montana Silversmiths, a check from Resistol Hats and a bottle of Whisky from Pendleton. 

We would like to thank our families, friends and our outstanding “Frontier” crew.  Thanks to the rodeo committees that hire us, to the contestants that enter our rodeos and the RODEO FANS!  Thanks to our sponsors, American Hat Company, Justin Boots & Wrangler.   None of this would be possible without all of you.  And, a big thank you to Las Vegas Events and the PRCA for producing the Greatest Show on Dirt!

Congratulations to the 2019 PRCA World Champions and we’ll see you at a Frontier Rodeo in 2020.
