For 41 years, the Cedar Valley Riders and the Ashland Optimists have presented their PRCA rodeo in Ashland Missouri, located about 10 miles south of Columbia, Missouri on Highway 63. With one of the finest facilities in the area, and $14,000 added money, riders and fans come each August to witness America's true sport. Championship Pro-Rodeo Company is our stock contractor and provides class acts and stock for the enjoyment of the crowds.
