Hahira - Some South Georgia youngsters are proving themselves as rodeo stars. 12-year-old Kayla Farmer and 14-year-old Chloe Bryant are both students at K-B Horse Camp.

Last week, they competed at the Southern Junior Rodeo Association finals in Ocala, Florida. Both placed in the top five in barrel racing, goat tying, and all-around cowgirl.

"I like going to the rodeos because its fun to be with your horse and around friends," said Farmer.

"It's good whenever you finally learn to work with your horse and it gives you a lot of confidence," said Bryant.

The girls won a belt buckle and several other prizes for their performances.
