Earlier this January, I traveled to Denver, Colorado, to experience the National Western Stock Show. It was amazing to see how the whole city of Denver get involve with the show. The National Western Stock Show was established in 1906 for top-ranking livestock, rodeos, and horse shows for people across the nation come for competition or just for entertainment. The stock show is one of Colorado’s most famous tourist destinations, that is held every January for 16 days.

The stock show is also Colorado’s largest western trade show that attracts over 650,000 visitors each year. This event strives to strengthen American agriculture and celebrate western lifestyles to their communities.

When I went there I got to see the Pro Rodeo where the greatest bull riders, bull dogers, barrel racers, and team ropers across America come to this event to win. It was fun to see the little kids doing mutton busting and to see the determination of the riders with their eye on the prize.

It was amazing meeting new people and also seeing more of the agricultural side to America. I recommend to visit this event. I hope I can keep coming to this event to keep meeting nice people and to see great competition.
