Little Boots Rodeo April 15, 2023! Our 25th anniversary!
The Little Boots Rodeo has been a key event for nearly 25 years and has been the start for many young people who have taken their experiences and continued on to high school, college and professional rodeo endeavors. Contestants also learn other life lessons and skills in these rodeos and the Queen/Princess Pageant. But mostly, our professional team wants everyone to simply enjoy this family-oriented event as the children partake in this fun-filled day of playing in the dirt and kicking up arena dust!
