About Us

The Western Sports Industry Coalition is a collective voice, presenting knowledge, experience, and legitimate, objective research to lawmakers to preserve and protect the future of western sports events and cultural traditions and to substantiate the industry’s unified commitment to the welfare of animals.


The coalition was formed on the heels of animal extremists' proposed legislation, banning the use of western sports equipment including; ropes, spurs, bits, and flank straps, in the city of Los Angeles.


The future of rodeo, bull riding and similar events depends on the unity and  actions of all participants and fans. As an industry we must stop animal extremist groups' pushed legislation from passing and potentially spreading city by city.
