What does a Rodeo Clown do? Put on some offensive coloured baggy pants, paint on your face, and act like a goofball – just to save someone’s life. Welcome to the world of being a rodeo clown. Rodeo clowns are both heartbreakers and risk takers that rarely get much credit for putting their lives on the line. During bull events, clowns are the first defense against the bull after a cowboy gets bucked off. It’s the clown’s job to distract a 2,000 to 4,000 pound angry bull from going after the cowboy. It is a dangerous mission and clowns often work in teams of two or three. Distracting a bull takes talent. You need to be fast, agile, and lucky. Bulls might kick, trample, gore you, pick you up and toss you, or hit you with body or head. Serious business. Clowns aren’t all about protecting cowboys. During rodeos there are lulls and slow times. This is when a rodeo clown needs his other talents. Rodeo clowns have to keep the crowd amused. A Master of Ceremonies and Court Jester rolled into one. It takes comedic talent, energy, creativity, and a sense of humor. Clowns use props, explosions, fireworks, or audience members. Rodeo clowns have a terrifying office – staring a Brahma bull in the eyes followed shortly after by staring an expecting audience in the face. This is not the job for everyone.

Frank Ripley & Tom Brogan would like to wish all contestants Good Luck & Have Fun at this year’s Exhibition & Stampede!

HOW TO WATCH A PRO RODEO SADDLE BRONC RIDING To qualify, the rider must have his spurs over the break of the shoulders until the horse completes his first jump out of the chute. He will be disqualified for touching any part of the animal or equipment, for losing a stirrup or for getting bucked off before the end of the eight-second ride. Each event requires a key component to achieve success and for saddle bronc competition, this component is maintaining a good rhythm. In time with the bronc’s bucking action, the rider spurs from the animal’s neck, using a full swing, toward the back of the saddle with his toes pointed outwards. The equipment required by the saddle bronc competitor includes his own CPRA approved saddle, spurs with dull rowels (the revolving disk at the end of each spur), leather chaps and a braided rein. The length of the rein is crucial as it can mean the difference between staying on the bronc for the full eight seconds, or being tossed off. By adjusting his grip carefully, the cowboy can maintain his balance and, hopefully, prevent himself from being pulled out of the saddle and over the front end of the horse.

bareback rider’s arm that takes all the stress as it absorbs most of the horse’s bucking power. While his arm endures this incredible tension, his hand must remain intact within the rigging’s handhold for the full eight seconds.

BULL RIDING A braided manilla rope is the cowboy’s only security as he rides a wildly bucking brahma/cross bull. The rope is wrapped loosely around the bull and a weighted cowbell hangs underneath. When the ride is over, the cowbell pulls the rope free. The bull rider will be disqualified for touching the bull with his free hand or bucking off before the end of the eight-second ride. As it is tremendously difficult just to remain on top of these loose-hided animals, riders are not required to spur. The successful bull riders keep themselves close to their handhold throughout the whole ride. This prevents the holding arm from straightening and jerking the hand loose. Bull riding, the most dangerous of all rodeo events, demands that a bullfighting clown be in the rodeo arena during each ride. As the cowboy dismounts or is thrown BAREBACK RIDING from the bull, the bullfighter distracts the Instead of a saddle, a double-thick leather animal until the bull rider reaches safety. pad, called a rigging, is cinched on the bronc’s back.

Saddle Bronc Cowboy Therapy Had an appointment with the surgeon, that patched my busted knee and wrist, For a final set of X-rays in case there’s anything missed. So I saddled the silly filly, like I’d done two months before, and this time when she came unglued, I evened up the score. Then I told the Doc, “I’m right as rain, I already had my therapy, I spent the morning chasing cows, on the bronc that broke my knee!”

Ladies Barrel Racing Smells Like Summer

In the big valleys and canyons, the smoke tends to sit, between here and the Yukon border, about four hundred fires are lit. The summer sun shows little mercy, trees and grass are tinder dry, thunder stalks the twilight ridges, lightning shatters the evening sky. It aint really that unusual, seems like, as long as I been alive, we get these bad fire seasons, about one year out of five! Mike Puhallo

Farmer Needs The Rain Ooh the farmer needs the rain And the farmer needs the heat Needs it in the proper order To grow a field of wheat But when the wind keeps a blowin’ Blowin’ everything away You can bet your boots the farmer’s gonna pay Ah, the government is helpful They tell you what to plant You take it into town They turn around and say, “No tanks.” And then the cops pull you over Right in front of the bank Just wanna see if you’ve got Purple gas in your tank Well it’s another dry sundown Navy blue and red Linda’s out sellin’ Tupperware and the kids are tucked in bed Ah the radio is cracklin’ And the tractor’s in the shed and I’m thinkin’ ‘bout some things my father said

He said the farmer needs the rain And the farmer needs the heat Needs it in the proper order To grow a field of wheat But when the wind keeps a blowin’ Blowin’ everything away You can bet your boots the farmer’s gonna pay And then the credit man comes to see you At the break of day He might have to take the truck Cos you can’t pay right away And you look towards the sky All your praying in vain We got a lotta bills to pay When do we get a break The farmer needs, the farmer needs the rain

The Cowboy Prayer

Our Heavenly Father, we pause at this time, mindful of the many blessings you have bestowed upon us. We ask, Lord, that you will be with us in the arena of life. We as cowboys do not ask for special favors. We don’t ask to draw around the chute fighting horse, the steer that won’t lay, or to never break the barrier. We don’t even ask for all daylight runs. We do ask Lord, that you will help us live our lives here on earth as cowboys, in such a manner, that when we make that last inevitable ride, to the country up there, where the grass grows lush, green, and stirrup high, and the water runs cool, clear, and deep, that you’ll take us by the hand and say “Welcome to Heaven cowboy, your entry fees are paid.”

This ain�t my first mix! Dawson Creek 101 1040 Alaska Ave.
