RMBRA’s first Membership Drive Bronc Riding, October 8-9

Rocky Mountain Bronc Rider Association

Rocky Mountain Bronc Rider Association

The Rocky Mountain Bronc Rider Association is a newly formed rodeo association especially dedicated to the on going success of the sport of bronc riding. The number one goal of the group is to make the sport of bronc riding great again.

With the overwhelming popularity of bull riding in this day and age, some say that bronc riding seems to be dying out. For people who have attended many amateur rodeos this past summer, they’re also likely to agree. Jon Suttee and Joe Middleton have been witnessing this decline in the sport for long enough, and decided to form the RMBRA to give bronc riders a place to learn, compete, and win top level prizes and prize money. And to give bronc riding enthusists a place to come to and watch their favorite rodeo event.

The RMBRA is taking bronc riding to a whole new level by creating divisions within the association so that bronc riders can compete at their appropriate level. The divisions within the RMBRA are: ranch bronc riding, rookie bronc riding, amateur bronc riding and professional bronc riding. Founder, Jon Suttee said “The events in rodeo that have experienced the most growth from a contestant standpoint are team roping and barrel racing. This is because of the divisions which exsist within various associations that have allowed new contestatns to start out, improve and eventually get to the point where they can compete with the pros. In bronc riding if you can’t complete with the pros, you really can’t compete at all, much less get started. That is why we’re structuring our associaiton to have divisions.”

The RMBRA is holding their first ever Membership Drive Bronc Riding in Laramie, Wyo., on Oct 8 and 9, at the UW Hansen Livestock Teaching Arena. There will be ranch bronc riding, rookie bronc riding and professional bronc riding at this event. The RMBRA is putting up $5,000 total cash along with various other prizes for the winners. Other prizes will include buckles, bronc halters, spur straps, and lifetime memberships to the RMBRA. Spectators who come to the event will be eligible for door prizes that will inlude western artwork and tack. There is also going to be a boot race for kids to enjoy.
