Tri-State Rodeo

Founded in 1966, the Tri-State Rodeo Association has been a nonprofit organization which covers a three-state area:  Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.  However, our membership in the last several years has reached out as far as Arkansas, Florida and Texas.  Our association continues to grow from year to year.  Tri-State Rodeo Association has grown into one of the top Southeast regional professional association.  The top fifteen contestants and one high school contestant in each rodeo event will compete at our year-end finals.  A total of 120 contestants will be competing to capture the top spot and become the Champion in their respective events.
