Western authenticity is alive and well in Montana. Here, working ranches still sprawl across hundreds of acres, with devoted ranchers raising livestock and farming the land. Cowgirls and cowboys work hard and play hard in Yellowstone Country, and one of their favorite pastimes is straight-up, down and dirty rodeo. So pack up your boots and get ready for thrilling entertainment, huge celebrations and a whole lot of down-home camaraderie.
