Description
Tales of the Wild West are incomplete without a mention of Pecos. Prompted by a June 1883 dispute in front of Red Newell's saloon, cowhands from the Hashknife, W, Lazy Y and NA ranches competed the following Fourth of July to determine which spread had the best ropers and riders.
Saddle-bronc riding and steer-riding contests were held next to the courthouse, and nearly 1,000 spectators watched the cowboys compete for the $40 prize in this first rodeo—an event that did not earn its name until some 40 years later. The West of the Pecos Rodeo is held annually in late June.
