About The Rodeo
Our small-town charity rodeo is a PRCA-sanctioned event and features top PRCA stock contractors including Smith Pro Rodeo. Smith Pro Rodeo is an 11x stock contractor of the year and one of the best producers in the rodeo industry. In 2022 we transitioned the Stampede to be solely focused on producing a world-class, large-scale, bareback-only rough stock rodeo for Granbury, TX. Proceeds from the event are donated to our annual beneficiary and select programs that serve our mission.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Hood County Stampede as we've grown and evolved since its inception in 2017. 2023 was our 6th rodeo event at Reunion Grounds in Granbury, TX. Each year we work to grow and build a great rodeo experience for the community and to fundraise for our beneficiaries. We continue to sell out the arena year after year putting on a performance for our community to watch western sport's toughest bareback cowboys pair up with the rankest stock on the pro rodeo circuit, all to benefit children right here in Hood County, Texas. We look forward to continuing our work here in the community, being able to showcase the cowboy way of life and raise money for local charities that benefit Hood County children.
Save the date. The 2024 Hood County Stampede Charity Rodeo is scheduled for Saturday, May 25th.

➼ PRCA Sanctioned Rodeo + HCS
The Hood County Stampede is now a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) sanctioned rodeo. This is an exciting upgrade for our grassroots, small-town charity rodeo. The PRCA is the oldest and largest rodeo-sanctioning body in the world. It is recognized as the leader in professional rodeo. They are committed to maintaining the highest standards in the industry including improving working conditions for contestants, monitoring livestock conditions, boosting entertainment value, and promoting sponsors. The PRCA is selective, only sanctioning about 650 top-of-the-line, cream of the crop, rodeo-related events among thousands that take place every year in North America.
➼ What This Means for the HCS
This means that the Hood County Stampede is a part of this elite group of rodeo events. When you attend the Hood County Stampede, you can guarantee that it is managed with the utmost fairness and competence and that the livestock used is healthy and cared for to the highest standards.
