The National Rodeo Finals

One of my first jobs when I was 15 years old was at a horse farm watering all of the horses and cleaning out the stalls. However, this was the first time in my life, beside watching the horse races with my grandfather, that I got to check out bare back rodeo riding. There were several horses at the farm that were prone to bucking off their riders, and so the owner thought it would be wise to utilize them in a way that seemed natural, and yes, a bit risky. Ultimately, the owners of the farm decided to start training some of their seasoned and experienced thrill seekers for the National Rodeo Finals.

I completely fell in love with the sport while watching all of the training that goes into competing. I watched the training day in and day out. The owners asked me if I wanted to go with them to the finals, however I was a bit to young at the time and I was still in school. I was so disappointed, but I still followed the sport, waiting patiently until I could go myself without a chaperon.

Now, of course, I'm thrilled that I have the chance to go. My fiance, who's planning a trip for us to Vegas in December this year, was looking for NFR Tickets. Aside from the fact that our airfare is next to nothing, we had a bit of extra cash to spend on tickets, and I keep bugging my fiance to get good seats. The 200 section range from $147 to $323 which is really reasonable considering every seat offers a decent view of the riders. The best seats range from $624 to $1249.

My fiance spent many years in Texas, and he's a true cowboy through and through. I, on the other hand, am a huge fan of bare back riding. I just think there's something liberating about connecting with a horse with nothing between the both of you exact raw power and complete drive. So the National Rodeo Finals is going to be a thrill of a lifetime and I can't wait.
