CYRA's MISSION:

"Our mission is clear. We vow to help each other in and out of the rodeo arena. We are here to help the youth today and build a strong bond among family and friends. We will teach valuable skills and keep Christ in our lives and hearts. We compete and make relationships that last longer than all the trophies, buckles, points, and money that we will ever win."   With God as our guide!  (By Cameo Breithaupt)
