BCLBRA

Committee

Please find enclosed information to help you with your upcoming rodeo. Please ensure that your judges have a copy of the rule book and are familiar with our rules.

For returning and new rodeos, we have a few things that may help you:

  1. For the 2020 rodeo season, the BCLBRA will cut the approval fee by 50%, if your form is received in the office before March 1, 2020. (ie: $75.00/day).
  2. Senior Boys Calf Tying is now called SENIOR BOYS GOAT TYING.
  3. In the steer riding, horned animals may be used but the horns must be covered for the Jr. Boys.
  4. Please run poles, stakes, and barrels together… do not break them up by putting an event in between them.
  5. Please make every effort to obtain breakaway steers that are uniform in size and pre-conditioned.
  6. Note that our insurance requirements are $5 million, and the BCLBRA must be named as an additional insured. For individual insurance needs, please phone Katie McCullough at Integris Insurance Services in Clinton, BC. Her number is
    250.459.2301, we have found Katie easy to deal with and their rates to be competitive, and Katie will know pretty much what you need.
  7. In 2020, Chute dogging is an event for senior boys. In the Chute dogging, contestants must wear a protective vest and mouth guard. Please contact Chute Dogging director with any questions.
  8. In 2020, the option of entering a rodeo online continues to be available. Please check into the website for all requirements for online entries.

If you have any further information about your rodeo that you would like listed, please send it in with the approval form.

We look forward to coming to your arena to rodeo.

Little Britches Tail Tying 2

The British Columbia Little Britches Rodeo Association is a place for young cowboys and cowgirls to get a start in the sport of rodeo. A non-profit organization, the BC Little Britches Rodeo Association, along with local rodeo clubs throughout the province host rodeos throughout the spring, summer and fall. Communities from Langley in the Fraser Valley to Falkland in the Okanagan to Prince George in the north participate.

This is a family-oriented sport that benefits young competitors in several ways including the responsibility they learn through caring for their animals, as well as the respect, camaraderie, and sportsmanship they gain as competitors.

After competing all season, points are tabulated to determine the Year-End Champions and awards are given out for Competitors’ achievements. All this is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.
