Cowboys and cowgirls have been bucking, chuting, roping and riding in the Mineral Wells Pro Rodeo

for a long time. In fact, this year’s rodeo – May 10-12 – marks the local event’s 75th anniversary. To honor three-quarters of a century of rodeoing, we offer the program from the 1970 Mineral Wells rodeo, reproduced and republished. So saddle up and enjoy.
