Hello!! Welcome to our site! Heres a little something about us..
We are the Northern Arizona Junior Bull Riders Association and we will be coming aboard our 8th year as a youth organization catering to youth bull rider athletes, 19 years of age and under. From wooly riding to senior bull riding we have 6 different events/age categories to meet your needs. As a team we have many champions who have competed in Shawnee, Oklahoma at the NJBRA National Finals and also in Ft. Worth & Abilene, Texas at the Youth Bull Riders World Finals and many top ten finishers.
Our goal is to promote youth bull riding, good sportsmanship, and good character while preparing young bull riders to compete at the professional level on and off the reservation. We believe every child has a dream and the ability to accomplish all they set out for themselves!
We are proud of each and every rider that competes for the love of this great sport. We are devoted to guiding youth bull riders interested in competing wherever they may travel to. No dream is too big or impossible! It does take hard work and dedication to attain goals and we see that dedication in many of these youth bull riders.
Our Motto: DREAM BIG!!!

TEAM NAJBRA AT 2012 NATIONAL FINALS IN SHAWNEE OKLAHOMA
Our mission is to provide junior bull riders with an opportunity to compete with some of the best youth bullriders and the best stock in the United States. The National Junior Bullriders Association is the place to ride!
Each NJBRA co-sanctioned State association brings their top 8 contestants to 4 days of competition at the National Finals. The contestants will compete for National Champion in events from Mutton Busting to Sr. Bullriding.
These young riders are our future--- in rodeo as well as in life. There are currently 13 State organizations sanctioned with the NJBRA.
The YBR World Finals is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of young people, while at the same time; making a difference in the lives of those around us.
Youth Bull Riders World Finals (YBRWF) has been structured under the Texas Youth Bull Riders, Inc., a non-profit 501 c3 organization based in Fort Worth, Texas. Since its inception in 2007, Andy Carter and Mike Vergari have managed the YBR World Finals. The YBR World Finals were founded on the belief that every child’s dream can come true if only given something to believe in. In 2008, the YBR hosted the first ever Youth Bull Riders World Finals. Three hundred of the very best youth bull riders came to Fort Worth, Texas to compete for the title of World Champion. The event was covered in some 20 plus newspapers from the Kilgore News Herald to the New York Post. As well, 2008 set precedence in youth bull riding that will never be topped outside of the YBR WORLD FINALS.
