Our History

The Real Cowboy Association’s goal is to provide you a wealth of influence from not only our members and fans but to our youth and essential workers that have helped during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We hope to use this influence to help promote leadership, scholarships, and an increase in business involvement in the communities, cities, and states. 

The Real Cowboy Association (RCA) rodeo is recognized as an educational, cultural, and historical icon. It is dedicated to community involvement through diversified family entertainment. RCA rodeos showcase the role of the African American cowboys' and cowgirls' Western Heritage. RCA rodeos are filled with fun and excitement for the entire family.

RCA rodeo season consists of rodeos in the southern region per year, with over 100,000 loyal rodeo fans across the states of Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Mississippi. RCA rodeo season will begin in the summer through November. RCA ends the rodeo tour in the state of Louisiana with the National Black Rodeo Finals.

RCA has accomplished an event sell-out for 15+ years.

The Real Cowboy Association gallery consists of Cowboys and Cowgirls competing for the 1st place top prize.

While they compete from sun up to sundown, the Real Cowboy Association spectators and fans travel from as far as Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

Remembering the proud history of the black cowboy and cowgirls through time.
