The Johnson County Junior Sheriff's Posse Welcomes You!

About the J.C.J.S.P.

The Johnson County Junior Sheriff's Posse is a youth organization with membership open to riders 18 years of age and under that reside in Johnson County, Texas or any bordering county. New this year - we have added an adult open class!

We welcome riders of all experience levels and strive to always offer a family friendly environment. Playday events consist of goat tying, poles, barrels, flags and straight barrels. We also offer leadline for those that are 6 and under who are not riding on their own yet. Leadline classes consist of barrels, flags and straight barrels and are done on a smaller pattern. Age groups are split between boys and girls and are as follows: 6 & under ride-in, 7-9, 10-12, 13-15,16-18, 19 & over. 

Members are eligible to compete in both the playday and roping events. All events are held at the Johnson County Sheriff's Posse Rodeo Grounds at 1315 South Main, Cleburne, TX 76031. Roping events are scheduled separately from the playday events.

For more information please contact Amber Bransom (817)774-8465.

Updates are always posted on the Facebook page as well, please follow us in on our page. The name is Johnson County Jr Sheriffs Posse, it has a red, white, and blue horse as the profile picture.
