Spin to Win Rodeo Magazine

Competitive Ropers with Performance Horses

Average paid circulation: 31,900

Spin To Win Rodeo readers live the roping and rodeo life. They own performance horses and
invest in keeping them healthy, they maintain property and equipment, they enjoy living a Western lifestyle with their family and they compete – a lot. These folks are constantly on the lookout for new products and strategies to help them win. Spin To Win Rodeo delivers news on cutting-edge products, how-to tips from the pros, World Series of Team Roping, ACTRA and R2R news and event information. The magazine will be redesigned this year, with new section openers providing premium advertising locations and a new, recurring rodeo-specific vet column.
