This annual 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.
HISTORY: The Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo’s predecessor was the Grant County Sheriff’s Posse Association. The arena was then located in the area where Ace Hardware currently sits. Amateur rodeos were held every year on July 4th for many years. In the late 80’s the Sheriff’s Posse members sold the land to Walmart Corp. and built the current arena at 24 Caballero Road. The Southwest Horseman’s Association was formed in 1990 and the first Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo was held in Silver City, New Mexico. The PRCA rodeo was held for nearly thirty years. In 2021 the rodeo underwent a major change and shortened the dates from four to two. The rodeo once again became an amateur rodeo and was a wild success due to the great rodeo contractor Casper Baca Rodeo. Any way you put it, the Southwest Horseman’s Association puts on a great rodeo in Southwest New Mexico!
