NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) The inaugural Jr. NFR drew massive crowds to the second floor of Cowboy Christmas during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, held in Las Vegas Dec. 1-10. The youth competition consisted of eight events: miniature bull riding; 14-and-under tie-down roping; mini bareback riding; 13-and-under girls breakaway roping; 18-and-under team roping; 19-and-under tie-down roping; and barrel racing in age categories for those 11 and under as well as 16 and under.

The Jr. NFR started with a total of 328 contestants who all worked very hard to secure their spot to compete in the City of Lights. Watch the video above to see what the future of professional rodeo looks like.
