The 8th year of the South Carolina High School Rodeo Association (SCHSRA) jamboree was held in the proximity of Conway, providing a platform for local youth to showcase their equestrian talents. The extensive three-day event was attended by hundreds of participants and spectators, who were treated to an array of competitive rodeo events and activities.
Competitors traveled from across the state to partake in the SCHSRA, with many of them competing in multiple rodeo events. Some of the most popular events included tie-down roping, team roping, breakaway roping, barrel racing, pole-bending, goat-tying, bull riding, and steer wrestling. The rodeo also featured a number of elementary school events like mutton bustin’ and ribbon roping.
The SCHSRA is a sanctioned event of the National High School Rodeo Association, meaning that the winners of each event are eligible to qualify for the National High School Finals Rodeo held in Rock Springs, Wyoming. In addition to the competitive events, the rodeo also included a variety of activities for spectators, including a carnival, an antique tractor show, and a barbecue cook-off.
The South Carolina High School Rodeo Association is the state’s largest high school rodeo organization, and it continues to grow every year. The SCHSRA is dedicated to providing young people with a safe and enjoyable way to pursue their passion for rodeo, as well as to promote the sport of rodeo throughout the state.
The 8th annual SCHSRA jamboree was a rousing success, with hundreds of participants and spectators flocking to Conway to enjoy the festivities. As the SCHSRA continues to expand, it is sure to provide a unique and exciting experience for rodeo fans of all ages.
