BV Fairgrounds to host winter bull riding series

Friday, December 3, 2021

If you thought rodeo action was only for summer, think again.

For the first time, the Buena Vista County Fairgrounds will host the URBA Winter Bull Riding Series, two Saturdays a month, starting with a show on Saturday, Dec. 4, with junior, novice and open competitors.

Additional events are scheduled for Dec. 31, January 8 and 22, Feb. 5 and 19, March 5 and 26, and a series Finals on April 9.

The events feature Iowa’s own promotion, the United Rough Stock Bucking Bulls & Barrels.

The fairgrounds cattle barn has been outfitted as an arena for the series, and will be heated. A special New Year’s Eve version of the event is in the works.
