Cowboy up for a wild adventure at the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, where our hosts get a behind-the-scenes tour of the rodeo and make the most of Cheyenne Frontier Days. We witness the heart-pumping action of bronc riding, bull riding, and barrel racing, and get an exclusive look at the animals’ care. No visit to CFD is complete without a visit to the Native American Village and fueling up at the world-famous pancake breakfast. Celebrate the “Daddy of ‘em all” and all that downtown Cheyenne has to offer.

howdy howdy all right howdy and welcome to 126th daddy of them all Cheyenne Frontier Days the first Frontier Days occurred in 1897. it was a one-day event they didn’t have shoots yet then there was no eight second timer either so he had to ride either until he got pitched off or until the horse quit bucket this took quite a while and since there were no lights in the arena turned out to be the only event they completed in the first part two days with that are you ready to go behind the shoots all right look at this yeah man we’re on the grounds

2000 animal athletes the animals are checked each and every morning if they are not healthy they do not need this is pretty awesome so anybody can do this behind the shoots tour that’s really neat just get tickets for this no no
