Explore the origins of Texas rodeos and stock shows, the very personal relationships Texans have with beloved rodeo and stock show traditions, and the lasting legacy of youth education, community involvement, and historic preservation these long-established competitions hold. See how five of the largest Texas rodeos and stock shows — including Fort Worth (est. 1896), San Angelo (est. 1932), Houston (est. 1932), Austin (est. 1938), and San Antonio (est. 1950) — bring crowds and competitors from all parts of the world together. Grab your gear, pick your mount, and bring the whole family to Rodeo! The Exhibition. No matter what your age, there's something to see, touch, and do! Immerse yourself in a multimedia, experience that will place you in the heart of the arena, sit on a saddle or climb into a rodeo clown's barrel, pose like a trick roper as you go back in time to Texas's early rodeos, examine protective gear to see what it takes to stay safe in the arena, find out what it takes to care for livestock. Come face to face with life-sized animals from livestock shows and learn about different breeds. [Organizer's description]
