Behind The Chutes

Community Contributions of Rodeo of the Ozarks Often Unseen

Posted: June 30, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Cody Mounts of Pine Bluff hangs on July 6 during the Rodeo of the Ozarks’ bareback riding competition at Parsons Stadium in Springdale.

A bull rider’s time tops out at 8 seconds, but Rodeo of the Ozarks organizers stay in the saddle year-round to bring Northwest Arkansas the four-day event sponsored by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Under those cowboy hats and behind the bucking chutes, organizers provide the community with events all year long, as they strive to give back to the community.
