JU­NIOR JUG­GER­NAUTS

Spin to Win Rodeo - - Contents - by Chelsea Toy

We put to­gether a list of some of the best the ju­nior rodeo ranks have to of­fer, and we caught up with each kid to find out what makes him or her tick. From break­away rop­ing to tie-down to team rop­ing, we found out who is the best of the best in the 18-an­dun­der di­vi­sion.

As all of the var­i­ous ju­nior rodeo as­so­ci­a­tions be­gin to wrap up their sea­sons with their na­tional fi­nals across the West, we looked to their ranks to find the best and bright­est ready to burst onto the scene. Rodeo kids across the coun­try spend their time in the prac­tice pen rather than on the Plays­ta­tion, and we honor their ef­forts here as we look for­ward to see­ing them in the pro­fes­sional ranks some­day soon.

Our list is in­evitably in­com­plete, as tal­ent lurks in backyard are­nas in ev­ery cor­ner of the rop­ing world. If we’ve missed some­body, please let us know at face­book.com/spin­tow­in­rodeo.
