7-year-old Dublin boy will be riding high this weekend

DUBLIN — Seven-year-old Logan Bunn is quite the young cowboy.
Two years ago, he started mutton busting, pole bending, barrel racing and goat tying. In addition, his family says that he has been roping since he could even hold a rope in his hand.
What better way for him to put those talents to practice than through the Virginia Junior Rodeo Association?
The VJRA is a non-profit, charitable organization, set forth to promote the sport of rodeo and to keep the Western heritage alive in America and in Virginia.
Through this organization, which is comprised of approximately 100 members, Bunn, along with the help of his horse, Cisco, competes in rodeos all over the state of Virginia. This weekend, he will participate in the Virginia State Rodeo Finals for the Virginia High School Rodeo Association, the VJRA and the Wrangler Association, which will be held at the New River Valley Fairgrounds in Dublin.
As for Bunn’s future goals, in addition to all of the mutton busting, pole bending, barrel racing and goat tying that he does, he said that he hopes to start break-away roping in the fall.
Farming has been in Bunn’s family for many years and has been passed down from generation to generation, so he said he enjoys working on the farm with his father and “Pa Doug.”
Bunn’s father, Brandon, is also a bit of a cowboy himself. He competes in team roping and raises beef cattle. Brandon and his wife, Courtney, live in Dublin, and, along with Logan, they have a daughter, Emily Grace.
Bunn and Cisco may be seen this weekend at the state rodeo finals, which start tonight at 6 p.m. at the NRV Fairgrounds.
Junior events will be held on Saturday, starting at 1 p.m., with high school level events at 7 p.m.
Sunday’s events will begin at 10 a.m.
Admission to the rodeo is $5 for adults and children 6 and under get in free.
