64th Annual Miles City Bucking Horse Sale This Weekend
By OutdoorAly


Montana is known for its rodeos, but the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale is in a class of its own. This event upholds its long standing reputation as one of the state’s best known rodeos and weekend of cowboy ruckus.

The Bucking Horse Sale celebrated its 50th anniversary in May 2000. Some of the best bucking stock in the nation have been showcased in Miles City since 1914, when the Miles City Roundup began. Today, top rodeo contractors come here to buy the stock they will use to entertain millions of Americans in years to come. The classic confrontations between cowboy and bronc start Friday evening and by the time Sunday afternoon draws to a close, several hundred ornery critters have given their first indications of whether or not they will join the bronc hall of fame with the likes of SkyRocket, High Roll, Big John, Dark Journey and Jake.
