Our year runs from August 1st through July 31st.  Our fall rodeos typically start the week after Labor Day and run through the end of October or early November.  In the spring, we start at the end of February and go through the month of March.  The last day to be able to earn points for state finals qualification is April 1st.

All Region 1 members may enter our Region Finals in Levelland in the spring.  Awards will be presented to the Finals Champions and Year End Champions in each event. The top 10 in points in each event qualify to the State Finals in Gonzales.  You can follow this link to see information from last year's State Finals. 

There are fundraising requirements at the region and state level that must be completed to remain eligible for rodeo competition:

  • Ram Truck Tickets - each member of TJHRA is required to sell fifteen (15) tickets at $5 each - a total of $75.  For every five (5) tickets sold, you will receive one (1) free ticket for the drawing. 

  • Bloomer Trailer Ticket - each member of TJHRA is required to sell one (1) ticket for $50.  Only $10 from each ticket sold is sent to the state office.  The remaining $40 stays within Region 1.

  • TJHRA Finals Program Ad - each member of TJHRA is required to sell at least one (1) $50 ad for the State Finals program.  Commissions are paid to members who sell $100 or more in ads.  There is also a state-wide sales contest with awards to the top five (5) sellers.
