RAPID CITY S.D (KOTA TV) - Some young cowboys and cowgirls are competing in 26 different rodeo events.

Northern Hills Little Britches Rodeo gives these kids the chance to show their talents, and qualify for the National Little Britches rodeo in July.

The rodeo is geared toward kids between the ages of 5-18.

They were tying down some Billy goats, and barrel racing at the Central State Fair Grounds Friday evening.

Throughout the competitions the kids can accumulate points for the national finals in Oklahoma.

The kids enjoy competing and being with family and friends.

"life Is a rodeo, you win or you learn you never lose,” said cowgirl Katy O’Daniel. " I've definitely learned to accept defeat and to always leave the arena with a smile on my face."

Winners will receive a cash prize.
