VENETA, Ore.- A local rodeo star took sixth place at the Junior National Finals Rodeo over the weekend. 

It's part of the national finals rodeo in Las Vegas, and it was a dream come true for the young cowboy.

"It was crazy, it's just like kind of didn't even really register how big and cool it was," Mason Stuller said.

Mason Stuller is a rough rider. He rides bucking animals and tries to stay on for eight sconds. 

Stuller started riding at only four years old. He was inspired by the movie 8 Seconds.

"We kind of just went to rodeos and I watched a bunch of rodeo movies. I was 4 and we went to a rodeo and they had sheep riding. I did that and I loved it... just kept doing it," Stuller said. 

Stuller told KEZI he has always wasnted to compete in the Junior National Rodeo. "It was really exciting because I always wanted to go to the NFR and finally got to," he said. 

Stuller's next competition will be in the winter series in Klamath Falls.
