For the first time in years, both sections of calf riding are full, she said. That’s 24 calf riders each evening.

There are 95 sheep riders and 87 stick horse riders registered this year.

Christeen and Brandon James supplied the barrel horse. Jonathan Jensen from Firth supplied the sheep. Pratt Livestock from Firth supplied the calves.

“We encourage people to register early,” said Finck. “As soon as this rodeo is over, people will be able to find us on Facebook at Little Buckaroo Rodeo.”
