Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

In my honest opinion I think that Americans have enough rodeo's and warm weather to stay down there and qualify for their own rodeo's, Canadian finals says it all in the title. Rodeo's should also really start encouraging the young people as well they are the future of this event, I know they say t...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

"Their" finals are called "World Finals" as they declare World Champions so they have to let the world qualify or it is not a "World" finals. They don't call it American finals. Our finals are called "Canadian" finals, we declare Canadian Champions. That is t...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

I am still working on my letter Randa and I do realize that there are many many different ways to see the rodeo situation. I really think that many people are quite afraid to speak up about this situation for some reason, so they talk about it behind closed doors and nothing is ever accomplished. P...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

I really hope nobody gets too catty over this because I think it is a great topic to discuss but here is my 2 cents... I bought my permit this year and Camrose was the very first CPRA rodeo I entered and I pulled a check. Now of course I was thrilled but never once did I ever think that this meant ...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

Let'sRodeo We shouldn't NOT allow them to compete but you can most definetly can calm the numbers down by not sanctioning every pro rodeo. And again you have your statistics wrong....every rodeo in Canada is not PRCA approved. It is up the individual committee to approve with the PRCA, they send in...

[quote="Let'sRodeo"](3) it is part of the PRCA/CPRA agreement that they are allowed to come to the CFR. This was put forward by the PRCA and they would not budge - and losing the PRCA approvals for the committees/rodeos/contestants was not an option at the time. So it is ok to protect the...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

I am glad that this discussion has arisen because I think there is a lot more to this. My goal here is definitely not to criticize anyone or any association,(it is hard not to become somewhat emotional though when rodeo has been such a huge part of my life and my family's ) as a matter of fact I am...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

I have a question of my own.

Why is it that it is mainly the Tie Down and LBR's that is overloaded?

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

We shouldn't NOT allow them to compete but you can most definetly can calm the numbers down by not sanctioning every pro rodeo. Right now in the top 12 in the Cpra standings in the timed Event 54 % are American and $544 406.30 is won by Americans. I'm asking how is sanctioning all these rodeos with...

Re: Canadian pro rodeo and American competitors

What do Canadians get out the Americans rodeoing up here? I can see the Americans appeal. Or rodeos pay well, they are closer together rather than driving across America in a week, and we have multiple pro rodeos per weekend. Since pretty much ever rodeo is sanctioned they can qualify for the NFR a...

Re: Building an outdoor arena - Ground HELP! asap

I got some advice on how to do my outdoor arena ground and it is free!!!! We have a clay based arena that was forever clumping up so it was like gravel and getting super hard packed. Find the oldest pile of manure you can (manure turns back into black dirt over time), spread it on your arena and mix...
