    One of the few places in the rodeo industry where I haven't worked, so I can't say much about the working conditions there. Since they sold a few years back, they aren't quite as interested in hiring people with previous rodeo experience. So, someone with plenty of sports experience who might be interested in rodeo would have a legitimate shot at it. Lots of travel with some of their jobs, but this one mentions "occasional travel," so it probably wouldn't be every weekend like it has been in the past with some PBR positions.
