Hi! My name is Mikayla Rose Smith.  

I am honored to be representing the NLBRA of Michigan as your 2015-2016 Rodeo Princess.  This will be my 3rd year in this great organization. I am excited for this next 2015-2016 rodeo season.  

I currently compete in barrels, pole bending, trail course, goat tying, breakaway, and team roping. 

I am proud to be a part of this rodeo family working together and hope that I can help some of you as others have helped me.      

God bless.

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.
