Every Sunday in the off season for rodeo, local kids get the chance to learn how to rodeo like the big guys at the Buckle Series by Mutt Neuman at the Trinity Valley Exposition Fair and Rodeo facility in Liberty, Texas. The junior participants range in age from 3 years on up in these muttin-bustin', steer-ridin', baby bronc mountin' competitions. Former rodeo man, Mutt Neuman organizes these rodeos so the kids of Liberty and Chambers counties can learn what it takes to be a real rodeo cowboy. For some, it's the start of a lifetime love.
