OMAHA, Neb. – The final performance of the 64th Wahoo Saddle Club PRCA Rodeo filled the stands with PRCA fans from more than 11 counties plus a group from the Netherlands. Hundreds of PRCA contestants traveled thousands of miles to compete in the “Biggest Little PRCA Rodeo in Nebraska” between July 19-21 in Saunders County.

Kyle Whitaker, a nine-time Linderman Award recipient, won the All-Around Championship in his home state of Nebraska. 

The Chambers, Neb., native threw his steer in 5.9 seconds to win the steer wrestling during the third performance on Championship Saturday. He placed third in tie-down roping with an 11.1-second run. Whitertaker’s 10-year-old daughter, Aubree, did an exhibition run in the barrel race to the cheers of the crowd.

“I’ve been coming to Wahoo’s rodeo for a lot of years,” Whitaker said. “I remember winning the calf scramble there when I was a kid tagging along with my dad. So that makes it special to win and see my daughter’s exhibition. The committee does a great job, has excellent facilities and they get good crowds.”

The Wahoo Saddle Club is a nonprofit with a mission to continue Western traditions in Wahoo and surrounding communities by maintaining the rodeo arena at the Saunders County Fairgrounds, supporting Western activities in the community such as 4-H and youth rodeo, and continuing a Nebraska tradition through community volunteers to produce the Wahoo PRCA Rodeo.

The all-volunteer organization is celebrating 64 years producing the Wahoo Saddle Club PRCA Rodeo in 2018. Proceeds from the rodeo are distributed in the local community with philanthropy.
