Justin Boots Best Footing Awards®

Justin Boots Logo

The WPRA is proud to have Justin Boots Company as a sponsor of the Justin Best Footing Awards. This amazing program allows the WPRA Board of Directors and members to recognize those committees in each of the 12 rodeo circuits that have put forth extra effort to ensure their rodeo had the safest, most consistent ground conditions throughout the entire rodeo. This in turn ensures a safe and level playing field for the barrel racing contestants and their horses.

The Justin Best Footing prize structure is as follows:
  • 1st Place winners receive a $1,000 cash award, plaque and Justin certificate redeemable for one pair of Justin smooth ostrich or lizard boots.
  • 2nd Place winners receive a $500 cash award and a plaque.
  • 3rd Place winners receive a $350 cash award and a plaque.
  • Most Improved winners receive a plaque.
Congratulations to all of the Justin Best Footing Award winners!
