The Official Boot of the NHSRA

The History of the NHSRA

Founded in 1947, the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) was established to promote and preserve the sport of rodeo among young athletes. This organization provides a structured platform for high school and junior high students to compete in various rodeo events, fostering a sense of community, sportsmanship, and dedication. Over the years, the NHSRA has grown exponentially, now boasting over 12,000 members across 43 states, five Canadian provinces, and Australia.

The NHSRA serves as the breeding ground for future rodeo stars. Many of the athletes who compete in the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) and the Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) began their careers in the NHSRA. The association's rigorous competitions and emphasis on developing rodeo skills provide the perfect training ground for young athletes aspiring to make it to the professional level. It's not uncommon to see former NHSRA competitors excelling in the PRCA and WPRA, showcasing the profound impact the NHSRA has on the sport of rodeo.


From High School to the Pros

The transition from high school rodeo to professional circuits is a natural progression for many NHSRA alumni. The NHSRA's competitive environment helps young athletes hone their skills and gain the experience needed to succeed at higher levels. Some of the events such as bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, and saddle bronc riding are all part of the NHSRA roster, mirroring the events seen in professional rodeo. 

Athletes who have competed in the NHSRA often credit the association for their professional success. The NHSRA not only provides the technical training required for rodeo but also instills a strong sense of discipline, resilience, and camaraderie. These values are crucial for anyone looking to succeed in the physically demanding and mentally challenging world of professional rodeo. Many of today's top PRCA and WPRA competitors can trace their roots back to the NHSRA, highlighting the association's role as a pivotal stepping stone in the journey to professional rodeo excellence.
