The historic American West was much more diverse than Hollywood would have you believe. On MLK Day, watch black cowboys and cowgirls take over the arena with a display of African-American roping and riding culture. Top athletes will compete in traditional rodeo events in addition to the Pony Express relay and ladies' steer un-decorating (steer wrestling with a twist). Added entertainment comes in the form of five- to seven-year-old cowpokes hanging on in a timed and scored mutton bustin' challenge. Mon 6 p.m.
