Every year there is a wonderful opportunity for young kids around here (and far away) to get together for fun, and to show what they can do. Billy & Kristin Riley have done this for about 13 years, and this is the last year that they are spear heading this event. It is my understanding the Casey Ferrell and his wife are going to take over this fun! They will be looking for help, and I"m sure Billy & Kristin will help, but more will be welcome..... don't be shy! This year it was August 14, and it will be about the same time next year. It just too fun to miss..... so don't!
Little kids get the opportunity to show their skills, and they are sooo adorable!
These next 2 are a couple of my grandchildren!
I LOVE seeing Dads enjoying participating
Stick horse racing
Barrel racing for all ages
Allisyn is one of my kids too. We are very proud of her!
Obviously, older kids go much faster!
Steer riding will probably always make me nervous, but it's darn popular, with girls and boys alike
Muttin Bustin' is one of my favorites to watch, though scarey too!
With the real little ones, Dads don't really let them ride, but it makes them feel 'big'
This is Casey Ferrel helping a child 'off'
Riding backwards is popular, and this young girl rode a long long way
More to come some time!

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
