Little Britches Rodeo coming to Havre, again, for three weekend events


September 25, 2019

Hi-Line Rodeo Team is holding its second annual fall 2019 Little Britches Rodeo mini-circuit at the Great Northern Fairgrounds in October and November, and the first registration deadline is Oct. 7.

Hi-Line Rodeo is co-hosting the sanctioned events with Laurel-based Big Sky Little Britches, the only Little Britches Rodeo franchise in Montana, and the rodeos will be held in the Bigger Better Barn.

The events will feature nine rodeos over three weekends — Oct. 19-20, Oct. Nov. 2-3 and Nov. 16-17 — with a 9 a.m. start time each day. Each two-day event has two, back-to-back rodeos on Saturdays and one rodeo on Sundays.

Entry deadlines are Oct. 7, Oct. 21 and Nov. 4.

Classes will include:

• Senior Team, 14-18: Dally ribbon roping and team roping.

• Senior Girls, 14-18: Breakaway roping, pole bending, barrel racing, goat tying and trail.

• Senior Boys, 14-18: Saddle bronc, bareback bronc, bull riding, steer wrestling and tie-down roping.

• Junior Team, 9-13: Dally ribbon roping and team roping.

• Junior Girls, 9-13: Breakaway roping, pole bending, barrel racing, goat tying and trail.

• Junior Boys, 9-13: Saddle bronc steer, bareback steer, bull riding, goat tying, flag racing and breakaway roping.

• Little Wrangler, 5-8: Flag racing, pole bending, barrel racing and goat tail untying.

• Trail Hand, 7-younger: Flag race, pole bending, barrel racing, goat untying and dummy roping.

Costs for classes without livestock range from $10 to $12, but classes with livestock are $18 to $26 and rough stock are $42 to $52. The increased cost pays for the livestock and rough stock fees.

Contestants can compete at three rodeos without being a Little Britches member but will need to pay a nonmember fee of $25, except competitors in the Trail Hand division.

Only Little Britches members will earn points toward qualifying for the national finals in July in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Contestants can pay the $80 annual membership fee to become a Little Britches member.

Each event in the different age groups will have a 60 percent payback to the top contenders. Admission for spectators is free.
