Calling all lil’ cowboys and cowgirls! The Greeley Stampede is partnering with the Greeley Mall to bring the community a Stick Horse Rodeo on May 7th, sponsored by the Greeley Mall, Justin Boots and Meadow Gold.
Bucky and Bertha, the Greeley Stampede mascots, as well as local rodeo queens will be there to cheer on little buckaroos between the ages of 3 and 6 years old as they compete in a mini rodeo complete with stick horses and a pint-sized bucking chute. Featured events include barrel racing, bronc riding, and bull riding. All participants earn both a ribbon and a prize and have the chance to win a pair of Justin Boots.
