Rodeo is not all about winning that belt buckle or saddle, at least not at the Young Riders Rodeo which was held Saturday at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds.
Judy Ferguson, event coordinator tells us there's more.
There were fifty-five contestants, from 'pee-wee's' on up to age 18, making this one of the smaller rodeos around. However, it has all the same timed events as the larger rodeos, but most of them are on the ground. Ferguson explains.
This is the 10th year for the rodeo, which pretty much pays for itself, but what's needed most to keep it going is volunteers. For more information contact Ferguson at 406-757-2241.
