Competitors from different age groups got up on their horses and showed off their roping abilities. Placing in the 14 to 18 age division was Coy Stauffer. He said he thought his day went pretty well. Stauffer has been riding horses since he was 4 years old and has been preparing for months for this competition. He said he just loves being around animals and his passion for competing in this event comes from the camaraderie he has with others at the fair.

"I just like the people," said Stauffer. "All my friends. We have a group called the 'Fair Fam' and just hang out all the time."

Now that the show is over Stauffer said for the rest of the fair he plans on eating a lot of fair food.
