2020 Calgary Stampede Cowboy Up Challenge

The Calgary Stampede Cowboy Up Challenge is a multi-faceted equestrian sporting event that showcases both horse and rider as they maneuver through a series of obstacles. Each obstacle demonstrates both their amazing horsemanship skills and incredible speed. Held in the Nutrien Western Event Center, this event is the richest and most well attended Extreme Cowboy Race in the World. Competition is always tough, especially with a $30,000 purse and $10,000 or that going to the winner of the sudden death finals.

This is an invitational competition, limited to 10 elite riders who are selected to compete in the three go-round event.
