Can Women Saddle Bronc Ride?

I am REALLY interested in Saddle Bronc riding, almost to the point were I am thinking about going around asking to ride a horse that will buck! I really wanted to know if women are aloud to participate in actual rodeos in the saddle bronc event (class, whatever it's called!) Everywhere I look it seems they can't, but that was only a few websites that I could find... does anyone has personal experiance riding bronc and being a girl or seen someone doing it at a rodeo?! Any help would be appreciated!

What I've read, since I've been looking into showing on a rodeo circuit sometime, is that females aren't allowed to compete in saddle bronc.
Though, the ones I read females are allowed to compete in during US rodeos are:
Barrel racing
Pole bending
Bareback bronc
Team roping
Breakaway roping
Although, I'm not positive about bullriding anymore (since it hadn't been on the list I saw on numerous sites) because the sites stated that females aren't allowed to do bullriding, but then I found stats for champion, female bullriders..So that, I'm confused about.
I'm almost positive that females are only allowed to do bareback. Keep in mind that riding broncs isn't just staying on, you have to Mark-out and do the rest of the stuff as well. But good luck either way. I would suggest not going around and just hopping on horses just because you know they buck..that's ago way to hurt yourself, no matter how experienced you are. :p

Well if they can't, that sucks for the both of us. I really want to do Bronc and bull riding too. It looks like an awesome time. I have seen a few High school rodeo girls compete in bull riding, but that's not saddle bronc. Well, I guess I wasn't much help for you...

It may be a class B felony where Iseul is (just kidding) but I've seen women in all of the rodeo events here in Oklahoma - including saddle broncs and bull riding. Some do better than others, but that's the name of the game, isn't it?

I don't think the rodeo associations can legally exclude women from competing in any event.

I'm almost positive in this day and age, they can't exclude women from these events (can they legally exclude men from barrel racing?), however as the entire premise behind the sport DOES cater to the tougher male, I think we don't see females because rodeoing is expensive and if you can't keep up to the top men riding, it really is a colossal waste of your time and money. So you probably see it more at high school or even college level, but rarely at national level because we just don't have enough women interested in it to be GOOD enough to compete at that level.

Same as men doing barrel racing, I don't think they're actually excluded from it, but a 100 pound woman on a horse VS a 200 pound man on a horse and you do the math who's likely to be more competitive at a speed event. I see LOTS of men competeing in gaming at local events though where the stakes aren't as high! They never win.

Since you wouldn't be starting out at the highest level of rodeo, it is very possible that you can do it on smaller circuits.

Like I said in the other thread...find a school and try it out.

Well, does anyone know of any rodeo 'schools' in British Columbia? I know there is none were I live, it is mainly an english town, but are there any in BC?
