About the WSRRA
The Western States Ranch Rodeo Association (WSRRA) started for one reason: to allow the full time and the average day working cowboy, working men and women, to have an opportunity to compete in sanctioned ranch rodeo events. For years, other associations have catered to only the full-time ranch-hand competitor, leaving a large gap for those who work full time in other professions. By including full time ranch cowboys, smaller ranches and part-time cowboy contenders, the WSRRA will considerably enrich the ranch rodeo sport, bringing in fresh talent, showcasing more skills and encouraging seniors, women and youths to participate in a family atmosphere. Only by continuing to expand the opportunities for all ranch rodeo competitors do we ensure that the ranch rodeo heritage will continue for generations to come. Visit wsrra.org for more information.
