Many people look forward to July 4th weekend: Riding, rodeos, grilling out, fireworks, spending time with family… This year, I had similar plans. I was headed to the rodeo, but not as a spectator. I had a GoPro, and it was my job to sweet talk as many Black Hills Roundup contestants into wearing it as […]

My dear friends invited me to tag along with them to Cheyenne Frontier Days 2016 on Tuesday, July 26, the fourth performance. We attended the highly-awarded outdoor rodeo, where we were blissfully cooled by rain drizzles, watched and played in the carnival, and of course, shopped the huge variety of vendors who traveled in from […]

I started swinging my rope in the box just like my husband advised me, then nodded for the steer and squeezed my horse with my legs. Shorty had me in throwing position in just a few strides, so I opened my hand and…watched my loop whack the steer on his back. What the heck. Who […]

I’m really loving the new video series, Rodeo Sports Promotions, put out by Pro Fantasy Rodeo and K.C. Jones. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting K.C. on a few occasions, and when I lived in Texas I got to know his wife Gayle. They’re two of the nicest folks you could ever hope to know! […]
