About Us

The Ohio Junior Rodeo Association (OJRA) was founded to provide a quality rodeo opportunity for boys and girls, regardless of their state of residence, who are attending kindergarten through twelfth grade. OJRA consists of four grade divisions (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) and twenty rodeo events, from dummy roping to bull riding, and sheep riding to barrel racing. These events are fashioned after collegiate and professional rodeo events with modified rules and stock to accommodate age and ability.
