Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Association
Rodeo Forever!

Greetings from the world of Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo. For those folks over 40 who still enjoy rodeo, please think about joining our organization. We offer the opportunity to rodeo in Canada or throughout North America with competitive, skilled contestants.

The Canadian Rodeo season starts in early April with rodeos scattered across Western Canada throughout the spring, summer and early fall. The 2015 Finals will be a Sudden Death Finals held October 15, 16, 17, & 18 at the Claresholm Agriplex, Claresholm, Alberta.

Contestants compete in such events as Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, Tie Down Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Team Roping and Ribbon Roping. Included in the opportunity to enjoy Senior Pro Rodeo is the choice to head south of the border to rodeos hosted by the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association.


New since the 2014 Season!

The CSPRA now has the option of hosting a full CSPRA rodeo, a timed event only rodeo or a roughstock only rodeo for first-time rodeos. A timed event only rodeo will consist of tie down roping, breakaway roping, ladies barrel racing, ribbon roping, team roping and steer wrestling. All rodeos have to follow the CSPRA rule book to be sanctioned. Please contact your event director with any questions. Be advised that the NSPRA has moved to a “region” format since the 2014 season. Included in the Canadian region will be ALL CSPRA rodeos as well as those rodeos occurring in Montana.
