A $400,000 purse makes the Snake River Stampede one of the top stops on the rodeo circuit. This Tuesday, barrel-riders, bullfighters, bronco-busters and their fans will descend on Nampa for the 103rd running of the Snake River Stampede and on Monday's Idaho Matters we'll talk about the legacy of rodeo in the West and more than a century of stampeding in the Gem State.

It's the 20th anniversary of the Snake River Stampeders Night Light Drill Team, an all-volunteer group of precision riding horsewomen who perform in the dark, covered with colored lights, every year at the annual Nampa rodeo.

The Snake River Stampede has been around for 102 years in Nampa and features all the rodeo favorites of roping and riding.
