Why did the Wrangler NFR adopt a clear bag policy?
In order to enhance public safety and make venue access more efficient, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo has adopted a Clear Bag Policy. Fans may bring in one (1) clear bag no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ or a 1-gallon plastic storage bag. Fans are limited to one clear bag per person, along with a small clutch bag (no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″) for privacy. Please refer to the pictures above for the approved and non-approved bags.
How many bags can each person bring into the venue?
Each ticketed guest can carry one (1) clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc-style bag or the 12″ x 6″ x 12″ clear bag – plus a small clutch purse (no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″). The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items.
What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?
Guests carrying a prohibited bag will not be permitted inside the venue. Fans with prohibited bags will either need to return their bags to their vehicle and transfer their belongings to an approved clear plastic bag or check their bags at the WNFR Check-In location at the Mendenhall Center lobby. Signage will direct you to the Check-In location.
If I have certain medical items that I need to bring into the venue and they won’t fit in the clear bag, what do I do?
Guests carrying medically necessary bags or equipment will be required to have their bag thoroughly inspected by security before entrance will be permitted.
What is the policy for diaper bags?
Guests with babies carrying a diaper bag will be required to have their bag thoroughly inspected by security before entrance will be permitted.

Yes. There is an official Wrangler NFR merchandise Clear Bag (20” x 20” size) that is approved for admission into the venue. These approved bags can be brought in by the ticket holder in addition to their approved personal clear bag and/or clutch. All merchandise bags will be required to be thoroughly inspected by security before entrance will be permitted.
Are all purses prohibited?
No. Small clutch purses (no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″) are permitted along with either the 12″ by 6″ by 12″ clear tote bag or one-gallon freezer bag. This should enable guests to carry in personal items and expedite entry into the venue.

This process will enable staff to move fans through our check-points much faster allowing staff to be more efficient and effective in checking clear bags brought into the arena. There will be less time spent standing in lines at the venue entrances enabling fans to be in their seats well before the opening ceremonies. Fans also will enjoy an improved sense of safety.

Brief History of National Final Rodeo
The PRCA first started the event in 1958 to determine the world champion in seven different rodeo events, namely; steer wrestling, tie-down roping, bull riding, bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding, barrel racing, and team roping. The event was first held in Dallas, Texas from 1959 until 1961. The event was then hosted in Los Angeles, California from 1962 to 1964. Oklahoma bid to be the host for the 1965 event. An estimated number of 47,000 fans came to the State Fair Arena bringing the state of Oklahoma an annual revenue of $8 million dollars per annum, the event was held there for 6 years before Las Vegas won the bid in 1984. Oklahoma tried to re-bid for the event, but they always came second to Las Vegas.
What are the Events at The National Final Rodeo 2019 will Perform?
There are a total of 7 events at the National Final Rodeo, each of the events is guided by a set of rules and regulations made by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and have been duly noted by the judges hired to evaluate the event.
The events are listed as follows:
Bareback Bronc Riding
The event is evaluated based on the rider and bucking horse’s performance. It is a single-handhold, 8 second right where the cowboy’s feet are positioned over the horse’s shoulder. Points are earned by maintaining upper body control in motion with the horse’s movement. In order for the rider to stay on the horse, PRCA requires the use of a leather rigging which is secured with a cinch on the horse’s withers.
According to various participants, bareback bronc riding is one of the most physically straining events in the National Final Rodeo 2018. Riders under this category are more prone to serious injuries.
Formerly known as “Bulldogging”, Steer Wrestling is when the cowboy catches a 600-pound steer from a running horse. In order to stop the steer, the cowboy must catch it behind the horns and wrestle it to the ground, then tie it up with all four legs and head facing the same direction. The cowboy is assisted by a “hazer”, a rider situated on the right side of the steer, he is responsible for keeping the animal on track during the run.
The current world record in steer wrestling is 2.4 seconds making this particular event focused on strength and speed. Balance and timing is also a big factor in this event. The cowboy must know when to dismount and latch onto the steer.
Team roping, in particular, is the only rodeo event that showcases two contestants at the same time. The team is composed of a header and heeler. This event requires a great amount of teamwork and cooperation from both riders and their horses.
The header makes the first move by roping the steer. This is done in three legal catches: both horns, one horn, and the head, around the neck. Any catch other than these is considered illegal which would automatically disqualify the team from the event. Once the catch has been made, the header moves the steer towards his partner to complete the second phase of the event. A 10-second penalty would be placed should the header not allow the steer to get a head start.
The heeler is responsible for roping the hind legs of the steer as soon as the header leads the animal towards him. If only one limb is caught, a 5-second penalty is placed.
Horses that are used in this event are different from the other ones used in the rodeo. Ropers, in general, prefer to use the American quarter horse, which particularly excels in sprinting short distances. Heading horses are relatively tall and heavier, whereas helling horses are quick and limber.
Saddle Bronc Riding
The Saddle Bronc riding is one of the classic events of the National Rodeo Final. It is an 8-second right that is evaluated similarly to the Bareback Bronc Riding just with stricter criteria. Dropping the reign or losing the stirrup is grounds for disqualification. Like the Bareback Bronc Riding event, the judges score both rider and horse.
In this event, the cowboy’s movement must be synchronized that of the horse. The very objective of this event is to achieve a rhythmic motion during the ride itself.
The horses in both events are different, Saddle Bronc horses are heavier and slower to that of a Bareback Bronc.
Also known as “calf roping”, this event features a calf and a cowboy mounted on a horse. Similar to Steer wrestling, the ultimate goal of this event is for the rider to catch the calf around the neck with a rope and tie its legs together in the shortest time possible.
Speed and proper timing are highly essential for this event. The cowboy must know when to strike right after the calf has left the chute. The calf is given a head start before the rider can proceed with the roping. Should the rider not follow the cue, a 10-second penalty will be imposed.
For this performance, a cowboy mounted on a medium-built horse catches a steer in the same manner of Tie-Down Roping or Steer Wrestling. However, in this event, a thinner rope is attached to the steer’s neck before it is released from the chute. The roper must then catch or trip the steer after the head start and dismount his horse in order to tie down three legs of the steer. A 10-second penalty will be imposed should the roper not follow the cue given after the steer is released from holding. The event is also called “Steer Tripping” or “Steer Jerking”.
Bull Riding is ultimately one of the most dangerous events. The performance consists of a cowboy mounting a 2,000-pound bull with only one hand on the reign. The cowboy is supposed to last the 8-second ride without touching himself or the bull with his free hand.
Bull riders, in particular, are expected to be agile, quick and strong. A good sense of balance, flexibility and physical strength is what helps them last the 8-second ride. Judges evaluate the riding strength of the cowboy as well as the bucking qualities of the bull.
In cases where the bull rider is less than 150 pounds, a braided rope is placed around the bull and is looped behind its shoulder blades.
What is the Prize Money of National Final Rodeo 2020?
The annual event attracts hundreds of competitors because of the huge cash payout. The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association has already given out $172 million over the past 59 years. On their 60th year running, participants and spectators alike are excited about the budget set for this year’s National Final Rodeo.
The total prize money has increased to an estimated amount of $6.4 million in 2014, almost doubling the amount it initially started with. On average $50,000 is given per winner at each event. According to National Finals Rodeo participants, they can win more money at a single event at the NFR compared to participating at other rodeo shows for an entire season. The largest payout given by the NFR was to Sage Kimzey who won $174,466 in 2014 for his spectacular performance in a bull riding event.
Due to multiple partnerships with brand name companies, the National Final Rodeo 2020 will be giving away $10 million. For participation alone, contestants get $10,000 qualification payout and an additional amount per event they participate in. This payout is for the for rodeo events alone. The NFR also features events like Miss Rodeo America and Junior NFR, with a specific budget of prizes for each event too.
