National Little Britches Rodeo

When: July 27-Aug. 1 2009

Family friends in New Mexico showed off their junior rodeo skills to us years ago with a team roping demonstration. In team roping, one person ropes a calf by its nubby horns and another ropes it by its hind legs. These two little boys, neither older than 13, whipped their lassoes until they whistled and felled a several-hundred-pound calf in less than 15 seconds. Cruel, maybe. Impressive, definitely. For down-and-dirty feats by tiny but tough kids, head to the National Little Britches Finals Rodeo at the Colorado State Fairgrounds (1001 Beulah Ave., Pueblo, nlbra.com). The event starts today and runs daily through Aug. 1 with two rodeos a day, at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., and a championship round Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $1 to $6 with a $1 discount for a donation of two canned goods for Care and Share. — Edie Adelstein

Price: $1-$6
