Michael Maestas Memorial Kids’ Rodeo set for Saturday

By Lori Lucero
Special to The PREVIEW

Come join us for the fifth annual Michael Maestas Memorial Kids’ Rodeo and team roping on Saturday, June 27.

It will begin at 10 a.m. (entries taken at 9 a.m.) at the Red Ryder Rodeo grounds (Western Heritage Events Center) and include timed events for various age groups.

This rodeo is great family fun, with age groups of 5 and under, 6-8 years old, 9-11 years old, 12-14 years old and 15-19 years old.

The events include barrel racing, pole bending, flag race and roping events. These kids will impress you with their riding ability, warm your hearts and put a smile on your face as you watch them compete for handcrafted belt buckles made by Maynard Buckle Co.

The jackpot team roping will begin following the kids’ rodeo (approximately 3 p.m.), with stock provided by Twyne Regester. This is open to adults, as well.

All proceeds will go to the Michael Maestas Memorial Scholarship fund to help out local seniors. This year’s recipient is David McRee.

See you at the rodeo.
