"YOUNG AT HEART" Match Calf Roping
JW Campbell (Canada) vs Bud Clemons (USA)

"Age is just a number for two senior rodeo cowboys"
                                                - NBC Montana News & kpax.com
Whoever said rodeo is a young man's game has clearly never seen the National
Senior pros do their thing. That was proven on Tuesday in Darby where a pair of
Octogenarians went head-to-head in a calf-roping contest for the ages.

Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Association  --  Rodeo Forever!

The Canadian rodeo season starts in April with rodeos scattered across Western Canada throughout the spring, summer
and fall. The Canadian Finals are a sudden death finals held in October at the Claresholm Agriplex, Claresholm, Alberta.

Contestants compete in such events as Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, Tie Down Roping, Men's and Ladies Breakaway, Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Team Roping and Ribbon Roping. Included in the opportunity to enjoy Senior Pro Rodeo is the choice to head south of the border to rodeos hosted by the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association.

 

The CSPRA now offers the options of hosting a "full" CSPRA rodeo, a "timed event only" rodeo or a "roughstock only" rodeo. A timed event only rodeo will consist of tie down roping, breakaway roping, ladies barrel racing, ribbon roping, team roping and steer wrestling. All rodeos have to follow the CSPRA rule book to be sanctioned. Please contact the committee representative or your event director with any questions. Be advised that the NSPRA has moved to a “region” format since the 2014 season and included in the Canadian region will be ALL CSPRA rodeos as well as those rodeos occurring in Montana.


* The CSPRA accepts credit cards
(Visa & Mastercard only)
a $10.00 service charge
will be added on all transactions.

* Ideas, questions, concerns, or any other general information
is welcomed by the Board. Contact an event director to
discuss what is going on in the CSPRA and watch for our
page in the monthly Rodeo Connection magazine.
