NLBRA of Michigan Queen 

Emmajean Ulrich


My name is Emmajean Ulrich. I am fourteen years old and live in Osseo, Michigan. I am going into my freshman year at Pittsford Area Schools.

I am greatly honored to uphold the position of NLBRA of Michigan 2018-2019 Queen. This season will be my 6th year as a member of the National Little Britches Rodeo Association of Michigan and my first as a senior girl.

The events I am hoping to continue are goat tying, barrel racing, trail course, and pole bending. I also have interest in starting dally ribbon and breakaway roping in the near future.

One of the main reasons I love being a part of this association is because it is so much like a family and I learn something new every time I saddle up and ride. I want to spread the word of rodeo and bring it back into this day-in-age.

I am proud to represent the National Little Britches Rodeo Association of Michigan as your queen and look forward to a wonderful year with all of my Little Britches family.




I am Kyanne Casey and I am thrilled to be representing the NLBRA of Michigan as the 2019/2020 Little Wrangler Princess.  I am 8 years old, and going into the 4th grade at Star Elementary School in Hastings, Michigan. I have grown up in a rodeo family as my grandparents, parents and brother have competed in the world of Rodeo.  I joined the NLBRA of Michigan in 2012 as a Trail Hand. 

I am honored to represent our association as my passion for Rodeo is on fire.  I love helping and teaching the younger kids learn new things, as well as talking with people and promoting the great sport of Rodeo!

I compete in the Barrel Racing, Goat Tail Untying and Pole Bending and cannot wait to enter the Breakaway Roping!  My partner in crime is my 16 year old pony Peppermint Patty. 

As the new season starts, I am looking forward to representing the NLBRA of Michigan, and would like to wish all the contestants the best of luck.
Happy Trails…

NLBRA of Michigan is successful due in part to the Board of Directors, the Youth Board, the Event Directors, volunteers of all ages, and the generous sponsors.


Little Britches is one of the oldest continuing junior rodeo associations in the nation.  The National Little Britches Rodeo Association of Michigan

(NLBRA of MI), a franchise of NLBRA in Colorado, was established in 1998 as a 501-C3 non-profit youth rodeo organization.  This association is made up of amazing volunteers who have come together to promote the great sport of youth rodeo.  The purpose of the organization is directed towards building character, self reliance, and good sportsmanship in our youth.  It enables kids to set goals and challenges them to accomplish such goals through discipline, organization, and physical fitness.
