A rodeo cowboy heads the steer Sunday during junior team roping at the Moffat Country Little Britches Rodeo at the Moffat County Fairgrounds. The Little rodeo attracted 75 contestants from three different states, and was one of the final rodeos before the Little Britches National Championships July 23 in Pueblo.

The National Little Britches Rodeo Association came to Craig Friday through Sunday during the Moffat County Little Britches Rodeo at the Moffat County Fairgrounds. The NLBRA, which hosts rodeos in 26 states year-round, is for children ages 5-18 to either get their start in rodeo or be able to compete outside of junior high and high school competition. It’s season starts in August and ends with the National Little Britches Finals Rodeo at the end of July. With the finals coming up soon, the Moffat County rodeo represented the last chance for some cowboys and cowgirls to perfect the resumes they’ve built over the past year and earn a spot at nationals.
