8/15/2022-Last month, RODEOHOUSTON announced their changes for their 2023 edition and we wanted to reshare in case anyone missed it. We are excited they will be featuring women’s breakaway roping in all 20 performances in 2023 up from the seven in 2022. With this new addition their purse will increase to a record $2,178,000. In addition they are adding two new local qualifiers, the Fort Bend County Fair and Rodeo in Rosenberg, Texas, and the Waller County Fair & Rodeo in Hempstead, Texas, replacing the former qualifier, Sandhills Stock Show & Rodeo in Odessa, Texas. Champions in each of the approved eight events, from each respective Rodeo, will be extended an invitation to compete at RODEOHOUSTON in 2023. CLICK TO READ MORE

The WPRA sends their condolences to Martha Josey on the passing of her husband, R.E. Josey. R.E. was a talented cowboy who won three AQHA calf roping titles. Martha and R.E. met at a rodeo and she said it was love at first sight. They were married in 1967 the same year they started conducting roping and barrel racing clinics and quickly gained a devoted following of students and a reputation for putting on some of the best schools in the country. Our thoughts and prayers are with Martha during this most difficult time.
