To the question, “Where do most of the athletes in the Mexican Rodeo come from,” Vick replies, “Most of them are from Mexico, and some of them are Mexican that are U.S. Citizens. Chihuahua is a big rodeo state with Mexico.”

Asked, “How long has the Mexican Rodeo been around,” Vick replies that the Mexican Rodeo has been in the National Western Stock Show for 19 consecutive years, but he has been involved in it for 8 years.

Then, Leon explained that two of the things that he loves about the Mexican Rodeo are the colors and the pageantry. The colors and the pageantry are very significant to him as they really show the Mexican culture.

One thing that is very interesting is that there are actually a few kids in the Mexican Rodeo.

This was interesting because not a lot of people know that there are kids that young in the Mexican Rodeo.

He also explained some of the main events. Some of them are bareback riding. Bareback riding is riding a horse without a saddle, but with reins. There is Bull riding in the Mexican Rodeo as well. Bull riding is riding a bull while trying not to fall off. Portuguese bull fighting is also a main event in the Mexican Rodeo. He also said that there was a lot of dancing and Mexican Style music in the Mexican Rodeo.
