Roughly a dozen Williams Lake and area cowboys and cowgirls joined upwards of 65 participants during the weekend for the Williams Lake Little Britches Rodeo.

Held at the Stampede Grounds, competitors — in both junior and senior divisions — showed off their rodeo skills in events including barrel racing, stakes, poles, goat tail tying, dummy roping, steer riding, breakaway roping and chute dogging.

Williams Lake Little Britches organizer Allison Everett said it went exceptionally well, despite some brief bouts of rain on Saturday.

“We had 67 total, which is down a little bit but that was because of the two rodeos out west (in Redstone and Alkali Lake), but the weather was great and we had no smoke this year which was fantastic.”

The Williams Lake Little Britches Rodeo was forced to be cancelled two years ago due to the wildfires.

“Thanks to all of the help, especially to Ron Hume for doing the grounds. He was awesome. And Willie Crosina and Lindsey Wood, who made his announcing debut.

“We had lots of kids out and they had a great time.”

For junior Little Britches competitor Reid Rife of Williams Lake, competing at his hometown rodeo was a fun time.

Rife finished four in junior boys dummy roping and fourth in junior boys steer riding.

“I just really liked the riding [events], watching everyone and just hanging out with friends,” he said.
