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.
The summer run is in full swing, and the rodeo schedule is keeping us all busy. The entries have been doing well and membership is growing. Please take time to look over the rule proposals for 2023 that will be voted on at the MSFR general membership meeting.
The board of directors have decided on the awards for the Mid-States Finals. The MSRA will be awarding finals contestant’s coats, yearend buckles and saddles will be given to All Around Cowboy and Cowgirl. Added money for the finals will be increased for each event. Membership participation in rounding up sponsors to make our finals even better will be much appreciated!
MSRA stock contractors have been busy producing rodeos and keeping the contestants with numerous rodeos to go to. The crowds have been large, and the committees have been very pleased about rodeos coming into their communities. If you get a chance to talk to our contractors or a committee member, please thank them for all they do for rodeo.
Please stay tuned to the website for finals information coming soon. Thank you all for your support and safe travels to everyone.
