It was held in Littleton, Colo., and was a huge success. It continued as a single event until 1961, when a convention was held in Denver with representatives from many different states. Today’s NLBRA is the main host of junior rodeo in the US. Each year, nearly 3,000 kids between ages 5 and 18 compete in 21 states in more than 275 Little Britches rodeos.
