AMERICA'S GREATEST SPORT

Welcome to the official site of the
Mid-States Rodeo Association (MSRA).

The MSRA is based in Michigan and sanctions rodeos throughout the Midwest states including Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Our members compete in the seven standard rodeo events: Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Bronc Riding, Bull Riding, Tie Down Roping, Team Roping, Ladies Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling as well as Ladies Breakaway Roping.

 

The MSRA is proud to promote professional rodeo as a sport; to strive at all times to insure honesty and fairness to both the contestant and producer; to create an amicable relationship among stock contractors and to inspect, sanction and advertise rodeos being sponsored in accordance with association standards.

Hello,

 

 The MSRA schedule is getting close to being completed with a few contracts still not in, but the rodeo count should be close to 85+. That gives a lot of chances to qualify for the Mid-States Finals Rodeo with 3 performances on Oct. 11-13th. This year’s finals will be held at the Show Arena in Swanton Ohio. We are excited to announce  that the board of directors has accepted and passed the proposal to have $5,000 added money per event with $5,000 a side in the Team roping for the 2024 MSFR. The 2024 MSFR will be paying out over $70,000 plus awards surpassing last year’s totals.   There will be a back number & awards ceremony dinner again this year at the Bunker Bar located in Holland Ohio on Oct. 10. More information will be coming soon in the long listings for the finals.

 

Rule proposals deadline will be July 11, 2024. Please send your proposals to the MSRA office so they can be published on our website. If you need help or have any questions pertaining to the proposals, please contact me anytime.

 

If you are a minor, you will be required to have a notarized minor’s release form signed by your parent or legal guardian and notarized before competing. If you are a minor and have bought a membership and turned in your minor’s release form to the MSRA office, you will not be required to show one to the rodeo secretary. If you chose not to buy a membership you will need to pay attention to which association is sanctioned first and have that associations  notarized minor release form filled out to give the rodeo secretary. These forms can be found on the Mid-States, IPRA & APRA websites.

 

We hope you have a safe and fun Summer and support your MSRA contractors who have supplied some great rodeos this 2024 season. Good luck to everyone and safe travels.

 

Respectfully,

 

Steve Shattuck
