If you are from New York and have never seen a horse maybe this will be fun for you. If you want to see really authentic rodeo with really good performers go to Mesquite. Really poorly paced (slow, slow, slow). Nothing very exciting. Poor acoustics in a really old building. Can't hear anything the announcer is saying because of the acoustics. Really expensive beer. At least the building was air conditioned!! And we had free tickets given to is by the hotel. If we had paid money it would have been a miserable experience. Free made it tolerable.

“Hello cowboy :-p”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

On our last vist to Texas, I visited Dallas, Arlington and Fortworth,
The rodeo was reccomended to us, and I for one really enjoyed it, great atmosphere inside the arena especially when the Texan (anthem where everybody claps hands) was played, unknown to myself there's a bull run in the town during the day, hopefully I'll see this next time, but I'd reccomended it, there's bars and restaurants aplenty near arena, opposite there a market with every wee brick a brack u would want to waste yr money on ;-)

“"Use your outside voice!"”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had a blast! It's a great venue - all the seating had a good view - and you are close to the action. In fact, we got dirt flung on us from an unhappy horse! The announcer was fun and informative - especially nice if you are new to rodeo and/or the events. The competitors are not all at the highest level, but there were some real accomplished athletes at every event! (bull riding, calf roping, barrel racing, bronco riding) We were (happily) surprised that the kids got to do a calf scramble! So, if you have kiddos be prepared with closed toe shoes! The concessions are reasonable, the pace is pretty good - a little slow for younger kids, but not dragging. They have stroller parking inside the building. Parking next to the building and across the street is only $5, but go early so you can explore the rest of the area - tons to do and places to eat.

This is a must-do on any trip to Fort Worth. Highly entertaining. Insightful as to the cowboy way of life. Definitely an experience.

“It was OK”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

It was OK, we found it well organized but missing a bit more professional riders and ropers, the most exciting of the night was the barrel racing. The good thing is that it is available year round, it just needs a little more to be an exciting experience.
