While most people may think of rodeos with car-sized bucking bulls, fearless cowboys, and lightning-fast barrel racers, it’s not just for adults. Many successful rodeo personalities got their start as children, competing in events like the Stampede Kids Rodeo. Events exist for all ages including the smallest rodeo enthusiasts, in a fun, exciting atmosphere, with prizes going to some of the courageous little cowboys and cowgirls.
While there are many after-school activities that children can take part in, events like roping and mutton busting are great for the younger cowboys and cowgirls in the Joplin MO area.
Lucky J arena offers youth open team and mixed team roping, steer stopping and breakaway, barrels, poles, goat tying, and more! These events are geared towards cowboys and cowgirls ages 6 and under, all the way through age 18!
