to the official home page for the American Professional Rodeo Association (APRA). The APRA is based in Pennsylvania and sanctions rodeos throughout the northeast.Our cowboys and cowgirls compete in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, and breakaway roping.
The purpose of the association shall be to promote rodeo as a sport and profession, striving at all times to insure honesty and fairness to both the contestant and the producers; to create an amicable relationship among stock contractors, producers, and contestants; to organize, sanction, and advertise rodeo being sponsored within the association standards and to the prevention of cruelty to animals.
We are pleased to announce that our finals will once again be held in Atlantic City, NJ. AFR 40 will be held on October 20-21, 2017 at the historic Boardwalk Hall. More details to follow as we progess in this endeavor. APRA Member Letter (Click on link below): http://aprarodeo.com/wp-content/
