The 2021 Greenlee Junior Rodeo Series continued Saturday morning in Duncan.

Children under five were lead around barrels and to red flags and other kids participated in other traditional rodeo events, such as barrel racing, steer riding, poles, goat tying, roping and team roping. This year's series is the 14th annual event.

The kids will accumulate points over four events before participating in finals on Aug. 28, said Amy Rhoton, series president. The overall winners will receive saddles thanks to sponsors and other top point-winners will receive other buckles and awards purchased with entry fees. 

Participants come from all over Greenlee, Graham and Cochise counties, Rhoton said. They also come from New Mexico.
