The Manitoba Team Roping Association was formed in the fall of 1975 and held it’s first event in the spring of 1976.  Some of the founding members are still active today, as we are heading into our 48th year!


Team Roping is one of the fastest growing, most popular equine sports in North America.  Competitors of all ages and abilities, rope and compete together.  This inclusive sport brings family and community together in friendly competition.  Youth membership is growing rapidly which excites us for the future of Team Roping!


In addition to regular sanctioned ropings held throughout the year across the province, the MTRA hosts a year end finals event.  A finals has been held every year since 1976 with the exception of 2020 due to Covid-19.  The finals have been hosted in rural communities such as Virden, Brandon and Austin.
