Happy anniversary to the Canadian Cowboys! This semi-pro rodeo association is going into their anniversary year with over 60 sanctioned rodeos in towns and cities from Alberta to Manitoba.

The CCA-sanctioned rodeos feature all the major events, plus the added bonus of watching future stars cut their teeth in Junior Girls Barrel Racing and Junior Boys Bull Riding. Each year the Finals are held in conjunction with Western Canada’s biggest agricultural show, Agribition, in Regina, Sask.
