2023 RAM Rodeo Tour Season Wrap-Up

The 2023 RAM Rodeo Tour season came to a tremendous finish, wrapping up the strongest year in the RAM’S 25-year history.

The Ancaster indoor facility saw a full house all 3 days, and on Saturday turned away hundreds of fans that did not buy tickets in advance at the door due to standing room only crowds.

With over 6000 people attending the year end Championship Finals fans now know to buy in advance if they want to be a part of the Championship weekend.

The RAM Rodeo Tours top cowboys and cowgirls of the year went head-to-head for $50,000 in prize money, featuring three days of competition, where we saw some of the toughest competitions to date, having hundredths of a second making a difference for the year end titles.

Raising money for TUFF Therapeutic riding, who help youth at risk, we want to thank the fans and competitors for generously supporting and raising over $5,000.

The COORS Original Saloon was home to the Championship celebration after each performance where fans met their favourite Cowboys and Cowgirls.
