Young bull riders compete in Levelland

LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) -

Forty young bull riders are competing this weekend for a chance to win cash prizes.

Riders from the ages of 8 to 17 years old started competition at 7 p.m. Friday at the Mallet Event Center in Levelland as part of the Miniature Bull Riding Association.

Organizers say it's a great way for them to gain experience that not many riders get at that early age. They say it helps build confidence without too much chance of them getting hurt.

The competition will continue Saturday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 dollars.

The Mallet Event Center is off 385 near the Levelland Municipal Airport.
