Bareback riding school helps out rodeo hopefuls

Many local cowboys got a chance to fine tune their bareback riding skills this weekend.

Casey Colletti, the local rodeo cowboy who's made a name for himself on the national stage, has started what he calls the Rocky Mountain Rodeo Bareback Riding School.

Those who are participating this weekend are ages 15 to 52.

They say it's important for more people to pursue the sport.

"Guys that have been on before, struggling to become better bareback riders," said Colletti. "Bareback riding is kind of a dying sport in rodeo, so I'm trying to do the best I can to get these guys to riding better and doing good. Get more guys out here."

Colletti may be headed for nationals in Las Vegas this December.

He says he has to wait and see if he qualifies.
