The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association’s board of directors has decided to reinstate a random drug-testing policy beginning in 2013.
The rules will be in the 2013 rule book and drug testing will begin then. WPRA president Jimmie Monroe writes in her president’s update that many members have requested a drug-testing policy, and that rodeo is one of the only disciplines that does not conduct some type of testing.
“We want to have our own drug testing policy in place in case an outside source would want to come in and test at a rodeo or barrel race. Having our own policy in place would prevent us from being subject to other rules. We are also doing this to educate our members about drugs and for the safety of the horses.” – Jimmie Monroe
