The Badlands Match Bronc Riding is once again coming to Kadoka on August 17th, 2012. This will be the 7th year of this stand alone bronc riding event that has been mentioned, by the fans and bronc riders, as being one of the top Saddle Bronc Riding Matches in the State of South Dakota. Bronc Riding fans from all over the state travel to Kadoka to attend this event every year.
"We try to make it a fun-filled evening that the whole family can enjoy, making it an event that they will talk about and can't wait for it to come again next year," said Dave Morrison, who along with his son Nate Morrison, produces and also provide the bucking horses for the event.
The night of bronc riding will have $4,000.00 up for grabs for the cowboys competing and will include three rounds of bronc riding action. Twenty bronc riders in the first round, ten progress to the second round, with five progressing to the $1,000.00 winner-take-all ride off. There will also be the very popular $500.00 bonus-winner-take-all wild ride that has always provided the crowd with surprises and many of laughs.
This year’s event will have a new twist, as it will be a part of the Badlands VS Sandhills Bronc Riding Challenge. The bronc riders will be coming from Valentine, NE where they competed in the first event of the challenge on Wednesday night, August 15th, just two days before the match in Kadoka. The challenge will feature some of Nebraska's bronc riders against some of the future superstar bronc riders from South Dakota. The bronc rider with the highest total score from both events will be awarded with a bonus $1,000.00 and a championship buckle.
Mark you calendars now! Friday August 17, 2012 starting at 7:00 p.m. Admission will be $8.00 per person with children under 8 years old free.
