 20th Annual Fortuna Junior Rodeo Roundup

Youngsters Compete for Saddles & Buckles

The Fortuna Junior Rodeo Roundup was just a thought in the minds of several parents many years ago. Today it is a success due to their hard work and dedication, and generous funding from sponsors.

The Fortuna Junior Rodeo Roundup Committee was established in 1993 for the development and growth of youth and rodeo. It was to conduct, promote and produce youth competitors for the champions of tomorrow. Rodeo events teach youths responsibility, sportsmanship and how to be team players. It also fosters family support.

6 All-Around Champion Trophy saddles, 28  Trophy buckles,  along with awards for 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded. The large cash and price paybacks for the winners is the committee's way of attracting more competition for our small number of local rodeo kids.
