About the California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association (CCPRA)

Image of a woman riding a horse at a rodeo. The California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association (CCPRA) is a non profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of rodeo.

Formed in 1966, this regional organization sanctions rodeos throughout California, with numerous co-approvals in Nevada, Washington and Oregon.

A steady growth in membership over the years has made the CCPRA the leading rodeo organization in the state of California. Cardholders include cowboys, cowgirls, judges, clowns, bullfighters, photographers, secretaries, announcers, timers, contractors, committee members, and fair managers.

The contestants at CCPRA rodeos are trying for about $500,000 in prize money each year. The money comes from entry fees and added purses. Points are awarded on a point per dollar system. Of the total fees from each rodeo, 5% is deducted, with 2% held in the trust and added to the finals purse, 2% going to awards and promotion, and 1% into the general fund.

The year’s championships are up for grabs at the finals rodeo, include the state queen competition. The weekend concludes with an awards presentation and celebration. The CCPRA continues the tradition of rodeo excitement for young and old alike.
