Mission and Purpose Statement

Western Sports Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the overall success of western sports athletes by advancing their health and well-being. We pursue our mission by providing medical, life counseling and financial resources to meet immediate needs and prepare for life beyond competition.

Our History

Western Sports Foundation acknowledges the sacrifices competitors have made to develop & expand all Western Lifestyle Sports. Athlete health and wellness has been, is, and will always be paramount. Recognizing that emotional, mental and financial health are as important as physical health, Western Sports Foundation is focused on total athlete wellness and offers services and resources that focus on total wellness. 

WSF comes from a long tradition of caring for athletes and their families.

Formerly known as the Rider Relief Fund founded in 1998 following Jerome Davis’ career-ending fall and injury while bull-riding, Western Sports Foundation continues to attract and receive philanthropic support from thousands of friends, fans, sponsors, participants in and around all Western Lifestyle Sports.
