little boots rodeo april 27, 2024

The Little Boots Rodeo has been a key event for 25 years and has been the start for many young people who have taken their experiences and continued 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 take part in this fun-filled day of playing in the dirt and kicking up arena dust!
