About the MRCA

The MRCA approves amateur rodeos in the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan and in North Dakota, USA. During the rodeo season, volunteer rodeo committees provide the manpower and facilities to produce each rodeo while local businesses sponsor prize money for the events. Stock contractors coordinate the rodeo contestants, provide bucking horses and bulls for roughstock, and cattle to rope for timed events. Amateur rodeos provide good family entertainment for each town and surrounding community. View the MRCA amateur rodeo schedule for rodeos coming up in your area!

MRCA amateur rodeo includes the following events: Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc, Tie Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping and Ladies Barrel Racing. Optional approved rodeo events may include Amateur Saddle Bronc, Amateur Bareback, Junior Girls Barrel Racing, Junior Steer Riding, Junior Breakaway Roping, Ladies Goat Tying, Ladies Breakaway Roping and/or Ladies Steer Undecorating.

During the season, rodeo competitors collect points for their placings at each rodeo. The top 10 in each event at season end are invited to compete at the “Sudden Death” MRCA Rodeo Finals in conjunction with Manitoba Ag Ex. Finalists compete to earn the year end Championship titles, trophy saddles, buckles and prize money at this prestigious event.
