The Great American Cowboy built this country with strong hands and a lonely heart. He brought beef to the North and tamed the West. He spent his nights under lonely stars by a camp fire and spent his days roping, riding and fighting the elements -- and some lived to tell about it. The history of the cowboy's life is written in books and songs. Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and John Wayne immortalized him in the movies.

Since 1950, the Taylor Rodeo Association has proudly brought to you the Annual Taylor Rodeo in the home town of William "Bill" Pickett. The crowds that come to this event have grown because of the enthusiasm and the excitement, but most of all for the entertainment they receive. Taylor's rodeo is different because of the tremendous amount of crowd participation. Spectators can jump into the rodeo action during events such as the Calf Scramble, Wild Steer Saddling, and Mutton Busting.

Over the years, the Annual Taylor Rodeo has grown to become the big fish in a little pond. It is one of the biggest and best small-town rodeos anywhere! Crowds at the event exceed expectations every year, and each year more and more people come out to Taylor, Texas to experience rodeo at it's finest. This is an open CPRA rodeo, meaning you don't have to have a membership card to enter. It's the perfect place you can watch local people rope and ride against some of the top cowboys and cowgirls on the circuit.
