This website is home to the Canadian Rodeo Historical Association (CRHA) known as the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall Of Fame (CPRHF). Our website features photos, biographies and memorabilia of Canada's most outstanding, professional cowboys, cowgirls and rodeo animals. Please enjoy your stay as we honour the hardcore, respected, cowboys, cowgirls and animals of pro rodeo Canada!


Founded in 1979

During a gathering of the Rodeo Alumni at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in 1979 a proposal was made to organize a Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. Further meetings were held resulting in the Canadian Rodeo Historical Association being formed. It became a registered association on June 19th, 1980. In 1981 the Association was granted tax free status as a charitable organization by the Government of Canada.
