ATTENTION PARENTS AND GRAND PARENTS
CANADA'S SMARTEST PERSON JUNIOR - IS LOOKING FOR RODEO KIDS

 
After three successful seasons on CBC Television “Canada’s Smartest Person" - the groundbreaking competition series that redefines what it means to be smart - is looking for energetic and outgoing Canadians aged 8-12 to contend for the title of Canada’s Smartest Person Junior!

We wanted to reach out to see if any youth within the Canadian Senior Rodeo Association or if anyone may know of someone that might be interested in applying for our show? We would really love to have a young rodeo star compete on the show! This is an opportunity to join a tv series contest that celebrates their unique talents and abilities.
 
For more information or details you can find our Facebook Page here at:   facebook.com/canadassmartestperson

Attention Ladies Barrel Racers (LBR):

- As of May 6/18, LBR will follow CSPRA guidelines and age categories. No longer will I adjust the order as this was never a rule but only an attempt to make it more fair for all of you. Whatever order the committee sets is the order you will run. Also there is no rule specifying duties, but I hope the members will step up and do duties as per the assumptions of all rodeo associations. Meaning the first three girls take down timers and the last three competitors set up timers and check markers. I will continue to ask three members to set the pattern at rodeos but again will be NOT be checking or enforcing this duty as there is no rule backing me. I hope everyone enjoys this sport enough to assist and aid in keeping it functional as the rest of the events do. If everyone works together there should be no issues.

As said earlier, no information will be posted on facebook about LBR. All information will be at the rodeo office. Or you can call me directly.
Thank you, CSPRA Barrel Racing Director
(friendly reminder, the position is up this year for LBR Director)

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.
