HRA is pleased to welcome IBEW as a GOLD Sponsor.

The 3000 members of the IBEW Local 2034 are much more than simply electrical workers.  They are also individuals who often serve as coaches, instructors, volunteer firefighters, members of service groups, choir members, hospital volunteers, team sport players, and a host of other roles.  They do this because they believe in making a positive contribution to their communities and to those around them.  Although their commitment to others might take root in the workplace, they recognize the importance of living a life that adds value to the world around them.  And it is precisely because of that commitment, that the IBEW is proud to support other groups and events that also make substantial contributions to their communities.  This rodeo is that kind of event and we are honored to play a small part in its success.

A Message from HRA President, Rod Manchester

The water is running, the grass is on its way, and so is the 2016 Heartland Rodeo Season.

The full schedule is posted on the schedule page of the HRA website.  Portage was our 2015 rodeo of the year and there are many questions as to why it is not on the schedule as of yet. An indoor rodeo at the PCU Center is in the works.  The Rodeo committee is working hard to finalize the last few details before the rodeo will be approved. Keep your eyes on the website schedule for up to date information.

Remember to submit your membership BEFORE April 30th in order to be eligible for the draw for a FREE 2017 membership.

Sponsorship and support is what makes our association successful. If you, or anyone you know may be interested in sponsoring an event, please be in contact with any of our wonderful board members.  The sponsor packages have been updated on the website, so feel free to print the package off and share the information with any potential sponsors.

The Heartland Rodeo Association Board of Directors is proud to offer its 1st annual Scholarship. If you are interested and eligible to apply, be sure to complete the application posted on the main page of the website and send it into the HRA office.  All applications MUST BE RECEIVED by April 30th, 2016. 

See you soon and Rodeo On!

The Heartland Rodeo Association was created in 1995 to promote and continue the sport of rodeo in Manitoba, with the entire family in mind. It is built open family oriented weekends, giving contestants of all ages the opportunity to compete in rodeo events. Today, it is still a strong and growing association, hosting rodeos throughout the year in various locations throughout the province. Competitors strive towards achieving the highest number of points in each of the 9 major and 2 minor events throughout the rodeo season. To end each season, the Heartland Rodeo Association holds a finals weekend, where top qualifiers compete for a chance to win awards.

Email entries will be accepted day of entries from 7am-7pm.
Entries are from 5-8pm
Callback's are from 5-8pm.

When entering, if there is only one day you are able to attend a rodeo, please state that day "or out (such as Sunday or out)". If you only state one day and do not clarify "or out", it is assumed that it is your preferred day, but that you can compete either day. If you do not get the day of your preference, it is your responsibility to find a switch, but you must notify entries of the switch. If you clarify "or out", and get "or out", it is your responsibility to find a switch. If you switch the contestant you are switching with is then "out" (i.e. will not compete in that event at that rodeo) and you take their spot in the performance. Entries will not be responsible for finding switches or changing the draw once it is completed. Entries does not guarantee preferred days.
