The Little Britches Rodeo is getting geared up for this weekend.

Liz Ellwood, events coordinator with the High River Ag Society, says it gets underway at 6 p.m. this Friday.

"We'll be starting with the barrel racing, pole bending, and then the goat tying, goat tail untying, breakaway roping, and team roping. And this is all for 16 years and under of course, so it's just brilliant for future cowboys and cowgirls."

Saturday is the big day that draws in big crowds to the indoor arena starting at 10 a.m. which is always a crowd-pleaser.

"We're starting with the pig scramble and then mutton bustin' and then it's the barrel racing, the poles, goat tying, goat tail untying, breakaway roping, team roping. And then the ever-exciting wild pony race followed by steer riding of course. And we've even got a hobby horse race which all ages are welcome to including, parents, grandparents, everyone... bring along a crafted-up hobby horse and you can join in the race.  And we will have some hobby horses here for people to borrow but if you can bring along your own, even better."

Ellwood is pretty excited to get the rodeo going.

"It's going to be a lot of fun. And we've got a lot of interest in the pig scramble and the mutton bustin' and just so everyone's aware for the pig scramble if you catch that pig you get to keep it."

For those who have never attended the Little Britches Rodeo, there's no charge to watch.

"It's completely free. So, come along and just enjoy it. It's a fun free day out. And we'll have a food truck there, there'll be vendors there as well. Something for everyone and completely free to walk in the door and come just enjoy the events."
