Schedule, Banquet Hall

Welcome to the
Kissimmee Sports Arena and Rodeo web site. Florida may not be what you
think of when you think of cowboys and the rodeo.
Florida cowboys were here long before there were any theme
parks. Florida's cowboys of the day were more accurately called
'Cow-hunters'. Because of the unique terrain and
underbrush, these cow-hunters had to be skilled in many
areas of roping and handling cattle that roamed almost
wild in the thick palmettos of our area. The Cow-hunters
would actually need to go in and flush out the cattle in
order to take them to the market. Not a very easy task
considering that they were in a swampy area with
alligators and snakes!
The rodeo started as a competition
between ranch hands whose job it was to break in the new
horses and cattle. At Kissimmee Sports Arena we celebrate
the heritage of the skills it took to survive in the early
days of our nation. Not only will you have a chance to
enjoy our exciting events, but you may learn a thing or
two about life in the early days of Florida. If
