Kentucky High School Rodeo Association


The Kentucky High Rodeo Association was founded in 1983, as a way to give high school students interested in the sport of rodeo the opportunity to compete against other students on the state and national level. 

Beginning with only a few members, and a very few qualifying rodeos, the K.H.S.R.A. has grown in both members and rodeos. Presently there are approximately 60 members and rodeos held each year throughout Kentucky and neighboring states.
