Intercollegiate Rodeo Team

The nationally ranked intercollegiate Rodeo Team at Mesalands Community College offers students a unique college experience. The Rodeo Team includes students from all over the world that compete in National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) competitions in the Grand Canyon Region.  The team has enjoyed impressive collective and individual national standings. The College also hosts an annual on-campus intercollegiate rodeo competition that is greatly supported by the community.

Practices are held in the first-class, competition-sized rodeo facility adjacent to the College with enclosed stalls, and secure storage for tack. The College provides ample practice stock for all rodeo events. Also available is a bucking machine, Heel-O-Matic, steer saver, and a horse and steer saver.

The College’s caring faculty and small class sizes promotes an effective learning experience for Rodeo Team members. The Team’s winning tradition of producing Academic All-Americans reflects the College’s mission to helping students become well-rounded athletes who are also academically successful.
