The Jr. NFR is underway at historic Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards!

The competition was culled down from qualifiers to Top 50 in each event, who competed yesterday for a shot at the Semi-Finals. The Semis feature the Top 20, vying for a spot in the top six to advance to the Finals.

“We will provide our contestants a one-of-a-kind opportunity and showcase the best of the best in all of youth rodeo,” said Anthony Bartkowski, Director, Athlete Development & Welfare. “Jr. Rodeo’s vision is to provide contestants the ability to perform on the biggest stage and jump-start their PRCA careers.”
