Rodeo is a big sport in Hawaii, you’ll be amazed at the level of competition displayed by our contestants. Hawaiian paniolo (cowboys and cowgirls) have been top rodeo competitors since Ikua Purdy of Waimea, Hawaii, won a national roping contest in Wyoming in 1908. From little keiki on up, ropers and riders throughout Hawaii compete in numerous events every year.
