David Holstein has been bringing his family to the rodeo for the past few years, he said he loves for his kids to get together and see what it takes to be a cowboy.

"We just like to see all the cowboys and bulls, mostly the bulls, to see how aggressive they are," said Holstein. 

Brayden Knight is a local cowboy from Jumping Branch. He said he wanted to impress the crowd and ride his bull, Redneck.

"It's a little nerve wracking to compete in front of a lot of people I know. But I'm gonna try my best to go out there and make them proud," said Knight.
