Alison Hittle and her 4-week-old daughter, Beckie Holde, came to the Indiana State Fair to support her brother, Tyler Hittle. Tyler was roping cattle at the Championship Rodeo Thursday evening. 

Hittle herself used to rodeo and still has a horse, so it is no surprise she expects her daughter to follow in those footsteps one day. 

“This was her first time on a horse and at the rodeo,” said Hittle. “She’ll get a horse before too long.” 

Tyler sat tall on his horse next to the arena. Beckie’s mom and dad lifted her up to sit with her uncle for a few minutes. He held the small baby bundled in her blanket while he talked to his sister. 

Beckie seemed to know she was just where she belonged, at the rodeo with the rest of her family.
