WE ARE EXCITED FOR 2018! TYRA IS 51 YEARS STRONG!!

 
  We are really excited about 2018! We are really excited about 2018! We will have 2 benefits as always and those will not count towards your rodeo counts but the points will be used (this has not changed). This year our calendar will only have 16 rodeos on the schedule – with those 16 rodeos you will be able to attend all of them, BUT you will need to designate the 10 you will run for points at. On your entry blank you will be given the option to jackpot or count for points when you enter (you must designate before the rodeo and it will be all the events in that rodeo).

Rough Stock
– we will only have rough stock at the first two rodeos in Gonzales (January 27 & 28) we will buck both rodeos at the beginning of the Saturday rodeo and the two benefits and the finals. The benefits will be two go’s (1st round on Friday night - 2 nd round on Saturday night and the short go on Sunday).

WE ARE REALLY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE WILL BE ADDING AT LEAST $20,000.00 TO THE JACKPOT PAYOUT FOR THE FINALS!!
Along with Year End Finals Saddles for Events, and 6 All Around TRAILERS, Buckles for 2nd – 6th year end event winners, plus saddles to Finals Event Champions!

  Congratulations to Andi Estes on winning the Ranch Hand Grille Guard given away at the 2017 TYRA State Finals in Gonzales, TX!

Ranch Hand was proud to be a Corporate Sponsor and friend of the TYRA State Finals Rodeo this year and always happy to see our youth keeping the Ranch Hand brand strong while competing across Texas for years to come. Thank you TYRA  for keeping a rich tradition and history of stewardship to the community, agriculture industry and youth of Texas. We support your mission of “Helping Youth Today So That The Sport Of Rodeo and Agriculture Can Grow Tomorrow".
 
       
  “Helping Youth Today So That The Sport Of Rodeo And Agriculture Can Grow Tomorrow.”
The TYRA has always understood that education is vital to the American agriculture industry.  So an innovative TYRA Executive Committee began to think about encouraging its members to continue their interest in the sport of rodeo and agriculture by pursuing agricultural careers in college.

Therefore, the Texas Youth Rodeo Association Scholarship Fund was born.  Each year our graduating seniors are awarded scholarships based on their academics, community service and essay.  Our scholarships are represented currently by members in 15 colleges and universities throughout Texas.

TYRA recognizes that many young people and educators today come from urban backgrounds and have little knowledge of the opportunities available to them in the sport of rodeo and the world of agriculture.  Our goal is to promote awareness of such programs.

TYRA has a rich tradition and history of stewardship to the community, agriculture industry and youth of Texas.  With a clear vision of the future, a successful past and continual dedication from the TYRA and its members the TYRA will continue to be a pillar of strength and support to the youth of Texas.

The TYRA is committed to the betterment of the community and furthering the organization’s mission: “Helping Youth Today So That The Sport Of Rodeo and Agriculture Can Grow Tomorrow.”
