Julie Abraham said, "I am so proud of the girls.
I feel so honored that the community has embraced the program. Even the surrounding communities have joined in, and they are also very dedicated to the dance company.

The Minnesota High School Rodeo Association has been in existence for over 50 years. MNHSRA is committed to promoting the sport of rodeo through the youth of our state as they compete in the rodeo events governed by the National High School Rodeo Association. It is the intent of MNHSRA and the NHSRA to project a positive image of sport of rodeo by preserving the western heritage of our country, demanding a high level of conduct among the members, and maintaining a high regard for the treatment of livestock. Our state association consists of approximately 150 families from Minnesota, Northern Iowa and western Wisconsin. We currently hold 10 regional rodeos thru out the state with our season ending with a State finals competition for both the Jr. High and High school kids. They are competing to qualify for the Nationals. The top 4 kids in each event qualify to compete at Nationals. The current locations are Lebanon Tennessee and Gillette Wyoming. The student athletes currently compete in 16 events, associated with rodeo as well as cutting, reining cow horse and shooting sports.
