NWYRA ROYAL COURT
This is where the foundation of Rodeo Royalty and
Future Queens begin............
The Northwest Youth Rodeo Association Court program is designed to provide an opportunity for our young horsewomen to serve as ambassadors for NWYRA, the NWYRA Court program, NWYRA Sponsors, the sport of Rodeo and Oregon’s Agricultural and Ranching communities.
Our Queen and Princess(s) will spend their year of reign traveling across the Pacific Northwest participating in Coronation Dinners, Parades, Rodeos and other events that are important to the Rodeo and Queening community.
One of the highlights of the year is attending the Miss Rodeo Oregon Queen Clinic!
