VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Kids got to be cowboys and cowgirls at a rodeo in Berrien County Thursday.

Special needs children participated in activities adapted especially for them.

The kids rode horses, bulls, trains, and did a little roping.

They were paired with Future Farmers of America students who helped them at the activities.

The event is called the Exceptional Kids Rodeo and has been going on now for 17 years.

"We have 85 exceptional contestants this year in which we've paired up with FFA students of Berrien County they always help me every year," said Exceptional Kids Rodeo Organizer Prissy Massingill.

The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Associations is holding a rodeo Friday and saturday at the Berrien Saddle Club off County Farm road.

Both shows start at 7:30 p.m.

Some of the proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
