Largest partially enclosed rodeo arenas in the USA

This post, the third in this series, contains a list of the largest partially enclosed rodeo arenas in the USA. Partially enclosed generally means the facility is roofed but without side walls. This protects the participants and attendees from the weather, while also allowing fresh air to pass though. These facilities appear to be particularly popular in Texas, as 12 of the 13 listed are located there.
