1/10/2017 HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Well it's not getting any warmer in the new year but things are starting to heat up with Big Sky Little Britches Rodeo! The mid-series leader board points are all figured and we are working hard to get them posted under Results
and will let you know when they are up!
The All Around Buckles from Bob Berg Designs
that we will be awarding each day at the first February rodeo have arrived and man, are they some good looking hardware!
Nearly all of our year end prizes have been ordered and have started showing up! We are going out three places for the All Around in all Divisions including Trail Hand as well for the event winners in each division this year! We are very excited to able to work some great individuals and companies who are helping us to provide our contestants with the highest quality custom prizes possible to make up a series prize package valued at over $40,000
!! (Wait till you see it!) This simply would not be possible without our incredible contestants and our amazing sponsors
, like Metra RV Center, Connolly Saddlery - Western Wear & Tack, Stockman Bank, Millers Hp, Carroll Original Wear, Tobacco Free Rodeo, Bar H Equine, Western Ranch Supply Co
. among many others, that allow us to keep growing.
A big part of these prizes is thanks to the 4 Horse Living Quarters Trailer raffle through Metra RV Center
that we are doing this year and we can't tell you how much we appreciate all the help by contestants to get these tickets sold. We are planning to sell tickets this weekend up at the Montana Circuit Finals in Great Falls, and in Billings at the MATE Show and the Metra RV and Boat show. If anyone is interested in helping us, we would greatly appreciate it!
We are excited to continue our partnership with Montana Mini Buckers
and want to congratulate Bradley O'Brien and Sarah Garrett O'Brien on their new adventure. They have a portion of the original Montana Mini Buckers ponies so you'll still see some that you know as well as a few new ones added to the string. Keep an eye out for the incredible year end prizes that the Montana Mini Buckers are putting together to finish out this great winter series.
Big Sky Little Britches will continue to provide mini bulls for Montana Mini Bucker's roughstock cowboys as well as for our own Junior bull riders. More information will be coming soon!
If you didn't join us this fall, it's not too late to get started with us at our last 8 rodeos starting in February! Contestants need to participate in at least 8 rodeos to qualify for series prizes. These are also qualifier rodeos for the 2017 National Little Britches Finals
in Guthrie, OK and a contestant needs to place in the top 7 in an event at least 4 times to qualify, so there are still opportunities to qualify! This is a tough hard working group though, so bring your game face!
Also, a big thank you
to all our contestants and families who joined us this fall. We had several parents compliments us on what a fun supportive, helpful group we have at our rodeos. We can't tell you how much that means to us! There is nothing better than a competitor going out in the arena, giving it his or her all, then turning around and cheering for the next person out the gate. All the parents who volunteer to help during the rodeo, or jump in anytime we ask, and everyone helping a newer family learn the ropes. We feel so lucky to be able to provide that kind of youth rodeo.
As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns and we look forward to seeing everyone at the first February Rodeo! Bring your long johns!
