We would like to, personally, thank each and every one of our 2015 Patriot Participants who took the leap of faith with us in creating the next chapter in the equine sports world. This first year event far exceeded our expectations, across the board. In the wake of the inaugural success, we are excited to dream about the implementation of multiple elevations to take to the 2016 event.  The first of many announcements comes in the team roping division, with the unveiling of our 25 Sanctioned USTRC qualifiers.

As we had announced at The Patriot 2015, The Founders will get the first option of entries.  In addition to The Founders, 25 teams per division will be implemented through The Patriot Qualifier Program.  The winners of the Patriot Qualifier 13,12,11,10, and 9 will be given guaranteed spots into the 2016 Patriot Event, as long as both partners are 21 years of age or older.  In the event that your partner is not of age, you must pick up a new partner, 21 or older, to be eligible to compete at The Patriot.  With the implementation of the Qualifier Program, we will allow up to 175 teams per division.  Please visit the Qualifier page for a complete list of qualifying events.  


We are pleased to announce that the BBR will continue to be the Sanctioning and Governing body of the Patriot Barrel Race 2016.  They are in the midst of their BBR World Finals, which is their biggest year, yet! They have received lots of positive feedback from the 2015 participants and they are excited to proceed into the 2016 event.


The Patriot will be hosted each February in Fort Worth, TX at the Will Rogers Center and will proceed RFD-TVs American, the World's Richest One Day Rodeo.  Dates for the 2016 event are February 22-27, 2016 (complete 2016 schedule)! There are many more advancements being made for next year's Patriot. Stay up to date through Facebook, Twitter and right here at The Patriot Event's website.  Feel free to send us your thoughts to This email address is being protected from spambots.
