The College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) is the highest level of competition for collegiate rodeo athletes. Each year, contestants travel from different schools across the country to Casper, Wyoming, to compete. Each competitor will get three runs, and the top 12 from each event will come back to the short-go.
This rodeo is nothing short of a marathon, one that takes hard work, determination, and perseverance to emerge victorious.
