AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– The rodeo took over Children’s Hospital on Friday. Professional cowboys, cowgirls, bullfighters and rodeo queens were there for the event.

They brought the thrills of the National Western Stock Show to patients. Some got a lesson in roping and took part in stick horse barrel racing.
