Typically, though, it’s not a time off the rodeo trail. Rodeo, as we know, is cyclical, meaning that seasons revolve around themselves. For instance, the 2012 season began in October, even though the 2011 season didn’t wrap until the final go-round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo on Dec. 10.
That means rodeo every weekend. I’ve been to college rodeos on Easter weekend, and I can’t remember a time when there wasn’t a ProRodeo on Easter.
I think it’s a good thing. Just like Christmas, there are times that need to be spent with those closest to you. If you’re on the road as much as rodeo folks are, then breaks like this are important.
Happy Easter, everyone. Enjoy the time off.
