What started out as a conversation between four friends in Eastern New Mexico and West Texas is now a premier rodeo association that caters to the military cowboy and cowgirl. In 2000, three Air Force Master Sergeants and a retired Army Sergeant Major wanted to organize a military rodeo association that would closely adhere to the same professional qualities they had grown accustomed to in the United States Military. Their vision was for a world-wide organization that would co-sanction other established rodeo associations, thus, allowing its members to earn points to qualify for an all-military world finals rodeo. Foremost in their thoughts was the ideal that no member would be left behind. In addition, a board of elected officials would work to gain sponsorships for top prize money and year-end awards that were competitive with any other top-quality rodeo association.
