Welcome…

Welcome to the home of the Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo in Silver City, New Mexico!

2017 dates – May 31, June 1, 2, & 3.

We will be celebrating 26 years of the Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo in 2016!

This annual PRCA Rodeo features high-flying bull riding, fast riding and roping and much more, all under the cool New Mexico evening skies. Our rodeo competition features some of the nation’s toughest Cowboys & Cowgirls and wildest bulls & broncs. Enjoy watching the little ones in the nightly mutton bustin’. Events are held at the Southwest Horseman’s Park, off of US Hwy 180 and Caballero Road just East of Silver City, New Mexico.


  Such a great crew, who worked so hard to make this year’s Rodeo the best! Thank you to the members of the Southwest Horseman’s Association Committee and the folks from Pete Carr Classic Pro Rodeo. 13315479_1033944893307231_8111751635998969821_n.jpg
