New this year are Chute Seats, located directly behind the rodeo bucking chutes on the north end of Reliant Stadium.

Here, the toughest college rodeo athletes from the Southern and Southwest regions in Texas, which include parts of Louisiana and New Mexico respectively, will meet, all vying for RODEOHOUSTON Collegiate Champion titles. This special event will feature the same fan favorites of a RODEOHOUSTON event, including the grand entry, calf scramble, and star entertainment.

From the northwest, riders can catch the shuttles at Delmar Stadium and METRO North Shepherd Park and Ride. In the southeast, the METRO Monroe Park and Ride serves as a pick-up and drop-off location. The Aramco Services Company at 9009 West Loop South, METRO West Loop Park and Ride, and METRO Westwood Park and Ride will serve patrons on the southwest side. Centrally located, the Reed Road HLS&R Park and Ride will offer longer hours of operation than the other locations.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is supported by many individu
als and organizations, but is especially proud to have Reliant Energy, Ford, Coca-Cola and Miller Lite as 2005 Heritage Partners.
Because of the nature of the event, there will be no restriction on backpacks, purses and other bags, but for increased security, everyone entering Reliant Park, and/or their possessions, may be subject to search. Anyone refusing to be searched will be denied access. No alcohol, guns or knives will be allowed to be brought onto the grounds, and food and drink may not be carried in to Reliant Stadium.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a 501 (c)(3) charitable event, committed to benefiting youth and supporting education throughout the state. Since presenting its first scholarship in 1957, the Show has committed more than $100 million in educational support to the youth of Texas.
