about the atra

Established in 2006, the Australasian Team Roping Association (ATRA) is Asia Pacific’s Premier Team Roping Organisation and the governing body of the most prestigious team roping events across the Asia Pacific. 

As ATRA is a not-for-profit member based association, all profits go back into development of the sport of Team Roping in Australia. 

ATRA also promotes and embraces diversity within our sport ranging from tiny tots to adults. As such, our competitors have the opportunity for equality in competition across all of our events.

From the Elite Team Roping to Breakaway Roping, Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling and 
Rope and Tie, our sports are also some of the fastest growing horse sports in Australia.


history of roping in australia

Roping started in Australia with the introduction of cattle farming during early settlement. This method was used for branding of stock and animal husbandry. 

Over the years this skill has been passed down through farming families and this has now grown to encompass many people from different walks of life.
