Some of the best cowboys from across the country rolled into San Juan Capistrano this past weekend to take part in the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo.

More than 9,000 people attended this year’s rodeo, which celebrated its 19th year as a stop in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association season.

The cowboys participated in ranch-based contests such as saddle bronc riding, tie down roping and bull riding, all in the hopes of adding more money into their annual earnings and increase their chances of making it to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas this December.

Below is the video and a gallery of photos from the two-day event at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park, as well as a complete list of this year’s winners.
