I'm a high school senior and I'm planning on college rodeoing. I'm looking for the best colleges with rodeo teams and professional coaches. Are there any forum members here from Sam Houston State University or Tarleton State University? I'd gladly hear your stories. Thank you beforehand.

What about the scholarships? Are the chances high?
Well, it's been a minute since I college rodeoed I graduated in 2006., But I loved every minute of it! I was more of a goat tyer and breakaway roper. I rodeoed in the Northwest region. I rodeoed as an independent for my first 2 years and for the University of Idaho my last two. Travel in that region wasnt bad for me ah er re I was located, 3-4 hours in any direction.
I made it to the CNFR all four years and I loved the college finals!
If I could go back, I'd do college rodeo all over again. High school rodeo???? Forget that!! I made it to those national finals and it was cool and everything but I much preferred college.
As far as barrel racing, as mentioned above you did need a higher caliber horse to really get something done consistently.
Aside from being a broke college kid and things being expensive even with some travel expenses paid by the rodeo club, I still had an awesome time and made great memories!

I have granddaughters that college rodeo and agree that if you want to win in the barrel racing you must have a really good horse. They competed in HS rodeo and if you want to be on a college rodeo team, and have your expenses paid, I think you have to HS and youth rodeo for the coaches to know you and to offer scholarships. It is a way to showcase your talent and the coachs pay attention. Coachs also want kids that compete in multiple events.
