Lil’ Wranglers Youth Rodeo Finals underway in Stanford

STANFORD — In the video above, Paul Sanchez reports from the Central Montana Lil’ Wranglers Youth Rodeo in Judith Basin County.

Here is Paul Sanchez’s video transcript:

Nearly 60 young riders gathered at the Judith Basin County Fairgrounds to test their skills at multiple events at the Central Montana Lil Wranglers Youth Rodeo.

This was the 3rd and final rodeo of the year for these future cowboys and cowgirls. The parents’ support was evident as they cheered on each participant.

I hear chatter in the crowd as parents talk to other parents about the time when they were younger and participated in their first Rodeo.

When we go to a rodeo in Montana, it is a family tradition that starts at a very young age. A young cowboy told me a story about when he was two and took his first horseback ride. What a story to tell, his grandchildren.

These fierce competitors earned belt buckles and the respect of their fellow cowboys and cowgirls at the Central Montana Lil Wranglers Youth Rodeo.
