The CSPRA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the
“Wrangler Canadian Classic Rodeo Tour”
This new series will be comprised of eight regular season rodeos that will be identified by the
tour logo seen next to rodeo dates in our schedule on our website. Each participating rodeo
committee will have one day designated that is part of the Wrangler Tour (see below).
With the creation of this Wrangler Canadian Classic Tour, we are hopeful that it will draw
more contestants out which in turn will help all the rodeo committees plus add another
positive and fun aspect to rodeoing within the CSPRA.
Points will be awarded based on the current CSPRA point system plus an additional
five-attendance-points bonus per rodeo. The high point winners of each event in each age
category will be determined at the Brooks Rodeo in September and win a
tour jacket donated and sponsored by Wrangler.

The Canadian rodeo season starts in April with rodeos scattered across Western Canada throughout the spring, summer and fall. The Canadian Finals are a sudden death finals held in October at the Claresholm Agriplex, Claresholm, Alberta.
Contestants compete in such events as Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, Tie Down Roping, Men's and Ladies Breakaway, 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.
The CSPRA now offers the options of hosting a "full" CSPRA rodeo, a "timed event only" rodeo or a "roughstock only" rodeo. 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 the committee representative or your event director with any questions. Be advised that the NSPRA has moved to a “region” format since the 2014 season and included in the Canadian region will be ALL CSPRA rodeos as well as those rodeos occurring in Montana.
