The Stettler Junior Rodeo series kicked off on Tues, July 5.
A regular summer staple at the Stettler and District Ag. Society, the series runs several Tuesdays throughout summer for various age groups of youth.
Events will run July 12, Aug. 2, Aug. 9, and then wrap on Aug. 16.
The series is open to youth from ages six to 19. Starting first, the six to nine age group will start beginning at 3 p.m. followed by the 10 to 13 age group after 5 p.m.
Depending on weather, the outdoor arena may be put into use for the 14 to 19 age group which means they could start earlier than 7 p.m. advertised on the Stettler District Ag. Society Facebook page.
Each age group will feature typical timed rodeo events such as barrel racing, pole bending, girls goat-tying, boys goat-tying, and breakaway roping.
Once all the main events are finished, team-roping will run for all age categories followed by tie down roping for ages 13 plus.
The promotional poster for the event notes that it is cash only and full western attire is required for participants.
