This is a yearly event for special needs kids held just prior to the Sunday rodeo events. Alex had Miss Livermore Rodeo 2008 Amanda Delaplane show him the ropes (literally), including how to run the barrels, rope a steer, ride the pretend bronco, and ride a real horse! Alex had a wonderful time at this event and we hope we can do it again next year! Lil' Pardners event information may be found here.
