All-Around Cowboy, or All-Around, is an award given to a rodeo competitor who is most successful in two or more events. Most individual rodeos and championships determine the winner of this award at the conclusion of the other events or championships.


The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association championship at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada is held every December. The PRCA Cowboy who wins the most prize money in a year while competing in at least two events, earning a minimum of $3,000 in each event, wins the world all-around championship.[1]

Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas currently holds the single season record for the most money won in a season at $507,921 during the 2010 campaign.[2] He also holds the record for most all-around titles with 11. Ty Murray previously held the record with seven.

In Canada, under the rules set forth by the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association in order for a competitor to win the all-around crown, one must compete in a rough stock and timed event in order to be eligible for the top prize in Canada.
