Welcome to the official site of the Mid-States Rodeo Association (MSRA). The MSRA is based in Michigan and sanctions rodeos throughout the Midwest states including Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Our members compete in the seven standard rodeo events: Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Bronc Riding, Bull Riding, Tie Down Roping, Team Roping, Ladies Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling as well as Ladies Breakaway Roping. The MSRA is proud to promote professional rodeo as a sport; to strive at all times to insure honesty and fairness to both the contestant and producer; to create an amicable relationship among stock contractors and to inspect, sanction and advertise rodeos being sponsored in accordance with association standards.
