Come one come all to the Darby Riggin Rally 2022!  The Rally will include the top 24 Bareback Riders from the PRCA and a $50,000 purse. See it for yourself in beautiful Darby, Montana on June 4th and 5th.

Bareback riding has been around for as long as the sport of rodeo itself. The event is judged in two areas. 50 points go to the horse for how hard he or she bucked and the difficulty for the cowboy. The other 50 points go to the rider on how well they stayed in position and how controlled the horse.  Both scores combined for a shot at 100 points total.

The Darby Rodeo is a great weekend to bring the family out for western entertainment. Stay up to date on ticketing and time changes on their Facebook page, Darby Rodeo 2022.  You’ll be seeing the top cowboys and top roughstock animals in the world! Tickets are on sale now! Visit www.darbyrodeo.org or in person at Murdoch’s in Hamilton, Darby Wine & Spirits in Darby.
