The California Junior Rodeo Association (CJRA) was founded in Riverside, California in 1968 and continues to thrive over 40 years later.  Our mission is to provide high quality rodeos and promote an environment where good sportsmanship and horsemanship are the core values to a healthy competitive event for our young cowboys and cowgirls.  Contestants are encouraged to support each other and often build lasting friendships.
