About Us

The Great Lakes Pro Rodeo Circuit is a part of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). It is a non-profit organization which recognizes the weekend or part-time rodeo cowboy. This recognition is accomplished by contestants earning points at PRCA approved rodeos within a determined geographical area deemed “the circuit”. The Great Lakes Circuit includes the following states:

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

The top twelve contestants in each of eight events are then qualified to compete at the championship rodeo or “the finals”. The Finals have been held in Louisville, Ky every year since 1979 during the North American International Livestock Exposition. 2013 marked the 35th year.
