Travelled on back of bronco – here? (5)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'here?' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I don't understand how they can define each other.

'travelled on back of bronco' is the wordplay.
'travelled' becomes 'rode' (eg travelled on a horse).
'on' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other) (in a down clue, letters appear on others).
'back of' indicates one should take the final letters.
The final letter of 'bronco' is 'o'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for rodeo that I've seen before include "At which cowboys show their skills" , "Cowboy competition, riding horses and bulls" , "skilful exhibition?" , "A bunch of cowboys, showing" , "Cattle round-up" .)
