  1. Do you provide equipment or do we have to bring our own?

    If you have your own gear bring it so we can evaluate it, help tune it up as needed, and so you can use at the school what you'll be competing with after the school.

    If you do not have equipment we provide a full line of Pro Rodeo Equipment FREE as needed except for boots.

    About any western style boots will work. Try to get something that fits well and is not too bulky, and with a relatively flat shank. It doesn't have to be flat but would be better if it's not too radical.

    If you are interested in purchasing equipment, we will have a full line of Pro Rodeo Equipment for sale on site.

  2. Are meals and lodging provided as part of the tuition?

    Only at New Caney, TX and Zolfo Springs, FL is lodging on the grounds provided Free for students (sleeping bag/cot facility with on the grounds showers). Meals are served on the grounds at a reasonable concession fee.

    At Rose Hill, KS there is now a bunk house that has T.V. and DVD player, Shower, Stove, Refrigerator, and Microwave. Sleeping bags/cots/towels required. $15.00 per night. Right on the Grounds! Limited to the first 9 signed up for the Bunk House each session.

    At all other locations we have area lodging, and many who give student discounts. We send you that contact information along with directions and other essential student info when you sign up for a school.

    I'm confident that once you are at the school you'll find you get far more than you pay for with or without lodging included. There's a reason the experience provider is the largest and most recognized rodeo training program in the world.

  3. What is the risk of injury at the school?

    When you deal with livestock the size of rodeo animals there's no way to promise the elimination of all potential injuries BUT our experience provider does have the highest and best safety rating in the sport. They have been chosen to do the safety seminars for Pro Rodeo, the National High School Rodeo Assn., the National Little Britches Rodeo Assn., The American Jr. Rodeo Assn., and so on.

    The experience provider will match the quality and caliber of livestock (from beginner stock to pro stock for those who need it... and everything in between) with the student's age, experience, physical condition, athletic ability, and ambitions as closely as possible. PLEASE NOTE: We are not dealing with trained animals and cannot make you an athlete or change your physical condition or your mental state in only a three or four day training session. We do our best to put you on the stock best suited for your ability and will always advice when you need more drills, etc. first (as we've always done at all schools).

    The provider also uses the best safety gear in the sport the best and most used protective vests, helmets, the "Brain Pad" mouth guards, quality riggings, saddles, and bull ropes. By doing so our rate and severity of injuries is far below that of what you'll see in any rodeo or rodeo association.

  4. Can you attend only one or two days of a school?

    Yes, but the tuition will not change for the school and you need to be there the first day from the start. The first day of each session is too important to miss if there's any way you can be there for it. The instructors will do what they can to catch you up if you have no other option but to come late, but that first half day is when students get equipment set up and ready to go, learn how to use the gear, and go over all of the ride essentials and safety concepts for each event.

    You must be there the first day or allow time to get you caught up if you can't be there for it the first day. After the first day it's up to you if you are able to be there the remainder of the scheduled session.

"For us thrill-seekers, riding a live bull definitely gets your adrenaline flowing. Bull riding is by no means a risk-free experience. There are huge risks involved with it. The staff at the school, however, did a great job in making sure those risk are reduced to a minimum, and increasing your chances of going back home in one-piece. Lyle (who I compare to General Patton) and CJ are the kind of people you want to have in your corner. "
