COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The cast of the hit TV show Yellowstone, which airs on Paramount Network, will get an up-close look at some of the best Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) bareback riders at the Yellowstone Riggin Rally, Sept. 7.

This $30,000, one-day event will pit the top 24 bareback riders in the PRCA | RAM World Standings in a long-go and short-go format in front of the Yellowstone cast on Labor Day, giving competitors the chance to compete in Darby, Mont., where some of the show is filmed.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” PRCA CEO George Taylor said. “These cowboys get to perform for the cast and crew of one of TV’s most popular shows, while in turn having a chance to make significant strides in qualifying for the Wrangler NFR.”

The cast, which has been put in a bubble of sorts during shooting for the fourth season, will see PRCA bareback riders who’ve competed in past National Finals Rodeos and some who are headed to this year’s Wrangler NFR.

With only three weeks remaining in the regular season following the Yellowstone Riggin Rally, the event will prove a great opportunity for bareback riders trying to make this year’s Finals.

“This is such a cool deal for everyone involved,” said 2002 PRCA Steer Wrestling World Champion Sid Steiner, who is helping put on the Rally. “I’m excited to be a part of it and really honored to have had the chance to help put this together.”

The Yellowstone Riggin Rally will premier on RFD-TV and The Cowboy Channel, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. (ET). It will also stream on the PRCA on Cowboy Channel Plus App at the same time. It will re-air on The Cowboy Channel and RFD-TV at 7 p.m. that night, and on The Cowboy Channel, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m.
