Miller family enjoys rodeo tradition His favorite music artists, George Strait and Garth Brooks, share a common bond with Ryan Miller - the youngest of the Miller family name of Neepawa - to compete in the sport of rodeo. The grade 12 graduate is involved in a family tradition - much like rodeo itself - with pint size cowgirls and cowboys getting the bug early thanks to a competing parent or parents. For Miller, he has not only gained plenty of knowledge by competing at the high school level, but the wisdom passed down by his father and mother, Neil and Brenda, along with older brother Justin, has made him a better cowboy. “My dad has competed in rodeo for years - he started competing at roping when he was 15 and competed in calf roping, team roping and steer wrestling for many years,” stated Miller. “He was the steer wrestling champion on numerous occasions within the Manitoba Rodeo Cowboys Association (MRCA) and this past October, he was inducted into the MRCA Hall of Fame.” And like his father, Justin has staked claim to a number of championships at both the high school and college level including being a top bulldogger. “As a Manitoba High School Rodeo Association (MHSRA) member for four years, my brother won all round championships, along with steer wrestling and calf roping titles,” said Miller. “Upon graduation in 2006, he became a member of the Dickinson, ND rodeo team, winning the all around champion and two steer wrestling championships for the Great Plains Region. As a college rodeo athlete he competed at three finals in Casper, WY and presently holds down the arena record in steer wrestling at the college finals.” Born into lifestyle Along with providing good horses that fit him to compete on, Miller has been around the cowboy lifestyle since he was born 18 years ago. Citing he was already going to MHSRA events with his parents and older brother, it was fitting that Miller try his hand at certain rodeo events when they brought in the Wrangler Junior High Division in the fall of 2004. “I decided to try boys goat tying and breakaway roping as a grade 6 student,” commented Miller. “Enjoying both events, I added chute dogging in grade 7 and in my final year of junior high eligibility I entered ribbon roping and changed from breakaway to tie down roping, formerly known as calf roping.” Even at a young age, Miller was a role model, finishing out the Wrangler division winning the goat tying, chute dogging, tie down roping, and all around championships. Venturing into high school competition in 2007, Miller competed in tie down roping and team roping, and to this day still competes in those two events with tie down roping being a favorite. “Being involved in the MHSRA has put forth good sportsmanship, good friends, and lots of fun,” added Miller, who has also laced on the skates in high school hockey over the past four years. “Rodeo is a great pastime and I really enjoy it. With the cowboy lifestyle being a part of mine and my family’s life for so long, the mileage needed to be covered to make the show, doesn’t bother me at all.” But at the same time, Miller found it nice to have the opportunity to compete at a hometown rodeo. “Hometown rodeos such as my case being the Stoney Creek Stampede in June is a blessing, as it’s always nice to showcase your talents in front of family and friends,” stressed Miller. Having the opportunity to be part of Team Manitoba at the Nationals in Gillette, Wyoming and the Canadians in Virden, Manitoba in 2010 was also a blessing, but a tad disappointing as well. “Leading the tie down roping going into the final round at the Canadian finals, I was disappointed that I missed my calf,” shared Miller, who will graduate from the Neepawa Area Collegiate Institute in June. “However, I was very happy to win the second round of the Tie Down Roping and am proud to wear a Canadians go round buckle. Miller qualified for both the Nationals and Canadians once again this year in tie down and team roping. In 2010, it wasn’t only competing against top elite high school rodeo athletes that made it extra special, as taking out his MRCA card, Miller also had the time of his life team roping with an extra special partner and mentor in his dad – a champion that has a passion for rodeo at various levels including high school where stars such as Miller shine brightly.

Alistair Hagan Howdy all; last time I wrote I promised you some small talk. Well where has the time gone, hard to believe we are already into August. It was a very wet spring/summer in our part of the world, less than 7% of the crop was sown (according to Mb crop insurance office) but when the sun did show up the grass and hay just exploded. I have spoke with many people who were negatively affected by this years flood and when ever we started to feel overwhelmed we would talk to someone who had it a lot worse than we did and where reminded how lucky we were. We where wet at our place but we were lucky that we didn’t have our home and lively hood threatened like so many people. It has been an extraordinary year with whole communities drastically affected all along the Souris River. Some rodeos have had to be postponed our cancelled this year due to their rodeo grounds being underwater, literally. In some cases these rodeos are the communities’ main event for the year and when people are down they could need these events to not only boost the economy but also their over all moral. Back to business at our last meeting we had in depth conversation about the MRCA and rodeo in general; our very strong total membership numbers and our alarmingly low # of rough stock card holders. We had a great discussion and bounced around many different ideas; we all know that we must do something to increase the numbers at that end of the arena. We all agree that the long term solution is education, clinics, getting new kids started. Here’s where I am going to get myself in trouble, because you are all thinking well we have clinics out there and that’s not working? True, but it is the mentality behind these clinics that is not working. “We’ll weed out the week one’s right of the bat” I’ve heard that said more than once. Well here we are 50 years of weeding out the week and we have no bareback riders

left! Let me put it this way: if a young guy came to our place and wanted to learn how to steer wrestle, wanted to join MY sport, wanted to buy a card support My association, wanted to start entering rodeos possibly be involved in rodeo the rest of his life in one way or another: I would NEVER put him on a colt with 20 rides hold the colt in the corner load him a fresh wild steer and just tell him to nod his head and bail off, get tough or quit. Why not because he would get hurt (or killed) and never steer wrestle again, exactly the opposite affect I want my clinics to have. Would you agree? I believe the goal of a clinic should be to get people started, to grow our sport. They should be positive, fun and safe. Not the same as the above mentioned “theory” but locally the entries in steer wrestling have grown 30%-40%, different than the other end of the arena? But I guess are new guys aren’t as tough! Just so you know the low numbers of bareback riders and rough stock cardholders is a problem in rodeo in general. Those at the top of our sport are addressing this problem and taking action: the “PRCA” has someone on the full time payroll to travel around put on clinics and promote the event and the sport in general. The “Calgary stampede” is doing a great job of getting the novice contestants going. We must all work together; we have to do our part to get these guys started in our part of the world. Let’s not forget we have produced 2 of the top bareback riders in Canada right now in “Colin Adams” and “Lane Collins”, not to mention Canadian PBR champion “Zane Lambert”. So we have the talent pool to draw from and we are going to dedicate a lot of time, effort and thought to improving the number of rough stock contestants but we need your help. I know I know I am always asking you to do something; I can’t ever just make a simple report. Sorry not sorry.

10 shows down, 4 to go! We are past the halfway point in our show schedule and are on the home stretch to the Finals in Brandon on September 17 & 18 at the Keystone Center. This show is put on by the MTPA and the Board will be looking for help in organizing and running the weekend. Please contact any Board member to indicate your willingness to help and make the Finals run smoothly. If everyone pitches in, it makes light work for everyone. You will find the results from our last two shows at Schubert’s New Country Ranch (Juergen and Shirley) and the Penner’s (Harv, Rhonda and family). Thanks to Juergen, Shirley, Harv, Rhonda and all the volunteers for all the hard work that goes into putting on a successful penning. We all appreciate it! See you at the Pen, Rick

2011 Rodeo Season Rodeo season is well under way, and so far it has been another fantastic season! Thank you and congrats to Miami Rodeo Committee, Shilo Rodeo Committee and Arborg Rodeo Committee on hosting very successful rodeos! We look forward to visiting Minnedosa, McCreary and Winkler in the upcoming weeks! Unfortunately due to the flooding situation, Souris Rodeo had to be cancelled for this year. We look forward to working with them towards a rodeo in 2012, and hope that Mother Nature will cooperate! It is hard to believe, but it is already time to start thinking about Finals, which will be hosted once again in the fantastic community of Carman, on September 10th and 11th. I invite all members to attend the Annual General Meeting on September 11th at 10:00am, and remind all Finals Contestants that their attendance is mandatory. Stay tuned for more information on Finals as it comes available! Just a friendly reminder for all contestants to make sure you are familiar with the rules for your event as well as general HRA rules, and the specific duties that may go along with your event.

August 2011

Picket Line - Horse Business They know what they’re doin’ but most of the time we confuse them by giving orders when we could save ourselves the trouble and let them pick and choose their own way without us interfering. Watch those cutting horses sometime. The rider picks the cow to cut and then drops the reins and holds on. The horse does the rest without any outside help from the person on his back. He knows what to do and goes to work. I never worried whether my horse was in the right lead or not when we were chasing cows. I figured it was his job to know what legs to use first when he was running or loping. We always got there okay so he must have made his legs go where they were supposed to at the right time. My horse never has trouble getting in the right lead when he’s running in the pasture. In fact, he was always in the correct lead until I went to a clinic and learned a little about lead changes. I began cueing him with leg and rein pressure to force him into the right lead. With my new knowledge and expert guidance, he most always took off on the wrong lead. I went to another clinic and suffered humiliation and abuse when the instructor yelled, “What are you doing?” He started slapping his hand on top of his hat like he couldn’t believe what he was seeing when he watched me try to teach my horse how to make flying lead changes. Mortified by his affront to my horsemanship, I pulled my mount into a hard stop and glared at him. Jack, the instructor, shook his head and yelled, “Keep riding, lope that horse in circles until I tell you to turn the other way and don’t do anything but rein him the opposite direction.”

I came through the center of the arena and he yelled, “Turn!” I moved the reins the opposite direction and Bingo! The horse made a smooth lead change without me making him do any body contortions or head twisting. He did it on his own without my help. Jack was right! I decided right then and there that from now on it was the horse’s business what legs he was going to use first. Ride through heavy woods or brush on the only trail wide enough for a horse to pass and then try to find it again on your way back later in the day. Bushes and trees all seem to look alike when you return. Missing the trail can mean tough going trying to break through the brush to get back in open country. I found out it’s a lot easier to let my horse show me the trail back and save myself the trouble of searching. The horse will tell you when you get there. All you have to do is trust him. Horses aren’t the only critters that are stubborn and hard-headed. I rode back and forth along heavy willows trying to find the trail l used earlier in the day that led around a high mountain swamp. My horse kept stopping and balking at a certain spot. With sawdust for brains, it didn’t dawn on me that he was trying to tell me something. I kept hunting. Everything looked alike and I couldn’t find that trail. Sonny stopped in the same spot again and nickered. It was a funny nicker and I wondered what that meant in horse talk. While I was wondering he stepped through the willows and, lo and behold, we were on the trail home. I still wonder about that nicker. It sounded insulting. Give em’ some credit and stay out of their way. Slack the reins and let them pick their own way across those bad spots. They know the best way to work all four legs at the same time. Maybe with four legs it might be easier to cross a bog a different way than a two-legged critter would choose. I would guess that horses know a lot more about horses than humans do. Have you ever noticed how a horse can find the only hole in a fence to escape through, or stand and nuzzle a gate latch until he finally gets it open? They know exactly what they’re doing, but when we open that same gate and want them to move through it, one or more of those expert gate pickers will always hang up between the open gate and the fence and act bewildered and in mortal danger. As soon as you turn your back and walk away acting like you don’t care if he’s trapped or not, he’ll back out and come flying around the gate in the correct lead with no help or outside interference.

Jack just didn’t understand that you need to be moving the horse one way with your legs and the other way with your reins all the while looking the opposite direction so the horse could read your mind. Doubtful, I loped around the arena and waited faor Jack to tell me when to change direction.
