The event will be held in the old unique west setting in the rustic arena of the Day’s of 76 Event Complex, Sunday May 30, 2021! This one day event kicks off with the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) Ladies Breakaway event. You will witness some of the fastest roping you’ve ever seen and some of the handiest women in the game. The ladies will rope for a spot in the short round that will be held during the Xtreme Bronc Riding Match.

The Saddle Bronc Match is a sanctioned “extreme bronc riding” event by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA). Thirty-two cowboys ride a bronc and compete in the long-go round. The top 8 highest scores advance to the short-round to compete for the title and money. The prize money that a cowboy wins counts towards their earnings to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals in Las Vegas.

These events not only allow us to recognize the rich history of the cowboy and cowgirl, but also as a major fundraiser for the organization Black Hills Stock Show Foundation (BHSSF). Back When They Bucked was originated and is being produced by the Black Hills Stock Show Foundation, whose mission is supporting the youth in higher education, organizations, programs, and projects that enhance services and education to the public. A group of board members got together to create the Back When They Bucked to raise money for the BHSSF. This event is kicking off it’s first year and they longevity is going to be here for many more to come.

The full day action continues as we kick off the afternoon festivities with LIVE Music and a LIVE Calcutta for the PRCA Saddle Bronc Riding Match will be Sunday, May 30th at 2pm at the Day’s of 76 Arena. Guests will have an opportunity to bid on a cowboy’s chance of winning at the Match. If you are the winning bid on that cowboy, and he places in the top eight at the Match, you win some money back!

As the BHSSF continues to grow, so does the fundraising efforts for our students and communities in need. The BHSSF Board of Directors and volunteers are dedicated to their mission, “Preserving the Legacy and Investing in the Future.” The BHSSF has brought over 25 years of support and financial assistance to youth and rural communities by supporting a vast array of community projects and events. During those 25 years, the foundation has presented over $600,000 in youth scholarships and rural community projects and organization in the five state area.
