Competitorial Getting Along “Why can’t they just try, a little bit, to get along?”… Seems like I’m saying that a lot these days. Not that I’m the portrait of getting along or anything like that, but (at least in my own mind) when I pick a fight, it’s based on something worth fighting about. Recently, I hosted a kind of “summit” of sorts with some of the big players in the calf roping genre. The purpose was to see if everyone could try to work together a little bit in an effort to keep the withering calf roping scene alive. Even getting key players together wasn’t easy and, though there was an honest consideration by some to try and move things forward, the ultimate realization was that no real commitment was going to be made by anyone to do anything differently. I likened the whole thing to throwing a pinch of bread in the middle of a bunch of ducks… after a little bit of squabbling and fighting for the tidbit, the bread gets ripped up so much that it seemingly disintegrates altogether… benefitting no one. I suspect this will pretty much be the case in the calf roping sector. I hope for the best, but I don’t see a very bright future given the current climate. On the other hand, there are some examples of opposing forces setting aside their ideologies and working together for the good of the industry. There is no question the USTRC and

the WSTR are in direct competition for team roper membership and participation. It’s a rivalry that runs both deep and wide, yet both organizations have been able to negotiate the use of a single classification system for the benefit of all. I know for a fact that such cooperation did not come easily from either side, but the one thing that ultimately prevailed was the fact that both parties understood that their cooperation served the best interest of ropers, and as a direct result, the continued progression of team roping itself. And then there’s the PRCA and what appears to be a widening rift between opposing factions from within. Since I have no inside scoop as to what might be the hidden motivating factors of each side (which I am certain exist,) I can only go on what each party is saying… AND IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE! Well… maybe I should clarify. It doesn’t’ make any sense that they’re fixin’ to enter into an all-out war over things that ultimately do not address the things that need addressing most. But I’m not surprised, really. The philosophical position for some time at the PRCA has been, “Make it grand and they will come”… referring to the fact that if the NFR continues to be bigger and better each year, the rest of the sport will take care of itself.

Junior Rodeo - Time To Get Started
back to an actual working occupation. Not that this makes rodeo any better of a sport than any other, but what it does do, is lend itself to some amazing history and traditions that have proven to build good ethics, good sportsmanship and work habits in those that get involved. That is why it is so important to get young kids involved in this sport. “Junior Rodeo events and associations are a great way to not only get kids involved in rodeo, but to provide some great youth development opportunities.” Says Rick Richardson, Interim State 4-H Head. “Junior Rodeo requires kids to be responsible, help to learn management, mostly related to time with the care of the animals, practice and getting ready to compete.”
Getting your kids involved in Junior Rodeo is the right thing to do. However, finding information about local associations can sometimes be time consuming and frustrating. How do you determine if the association is the right

f you look up the word Rodeo on Wikipedia the definition starts out like this: “Rodeo is a competitive sport which arose out of the working practices of cattle herding in Spain, Mexico, and later the United States, Canada, South America and Australia. It was based on the skills required of the working vaqueros and later, cowboys, in what today is the western United States, western Canada, and northern Mexico. Today it is a sporting event that consists of events that involve horses and other livestock, designed to test the skill and speed of cowboy and cowgirl athletes who participate.” I have always admired the fact that the sport of rodeo came from a “working practice.” Not many sports today trace

one for you and your kids? Choosing a junior rodeo association, especially if this is your first time, is a big decision, but it doesn’t have to be a stressful one. You can start by asking yourself a couple simple questions such as “What are my goals?” and “How far do I want to travel?” Remember: deciding on which association you are going to compete in is your personal decision. Unlike a lot of sport organizations that have many restrictions set by the organization keeping you from going wherever, or as far as you would like to go to participate. With Junior Rodeo those decisions are usually dependent on your own resources and the goals you

have set for you and your family. It is always recommended to go watch an event or two that is hosted by the association you are interested in before you make that decision. Obviously word of mouth is also good, especially if you have friends or relatives that already participate in that association. So take the time to get started, get involved in junior rodeo. It is not only a great opportunity for the kids but it provides for some great family time. Below is a list of associations around the southwest, now it might not be all of them and we apologize if we have missed one or two and some of the series have already started this year but you can still catch the remaining events. Most organizations do not require that you make every one of the events to qualify for the finals and prizes. Also remember that when you do get involved, make sure to step up to the plate and do your part. These associations are most all volunteer run and as much help as possible is always

National All Amateurs Team Roping
t was great weather and great roping at Dunn’s Arena in Litchfield Park, AZ. What better way to start off the first month of the New Year than with not only one roping, but two ropings. Ropers not only came from the local areas but many traveled a few miles to get a little relief from the cold temperatures that were upon a good part of the Southwest. It was obvious that the ropers enjoyed the warmer temps in Litchfield Park and as always Yost Productions put on a couple of the topnotch productions they are known for. Congratulations to all the winners!

Prominent Cowboys Say They Are Defecting from PRCA Article Courtesy Of Alan Snel and The Las Vegas Review-Journal
rofessional rodeo’s most prominent cowboys say they are defecting from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association to form their own organization, but they are coy about their views on the future of the National Finals Rodeo or any other major rodeo event in Las Vegas. The biggest names in rodeo led by 11-time world all-around champion Trevor Brazile — the LeBron James of the rodeo world — signed a statement posted on Facebook this week saying it’s time for the sport’s top contestants to be directly involved in the sport’s future. One of the organizers, steer wrestler K.C. Jones, on Tuesday confirmed the efforts to leave the PRCA and start a different rodeo cowboy organization. “It’s an exciting time for professional rodeo,” Jones told the Review-Journal. He noted cowboys are already talking with rodeo committees and venues about events outside of Colorado Springs, Colo.-based PRCA, the sport’s governing body. Charly Crawford, a seven-time qualifier in the NFR’s team roping category, said the motivation behind the efforts is that the sport’s top cowboys want a bigger voice in the PRCA’s decision-making process. Crawford said the NFR draws the top 120 cowboys, but their voices are not heard at the PRCA board meetings. Overall, there were 5,071 PRCA contestant card holders in 2013. Crawford also said a concern is big rodeos such as Calgary and Houston are breaking away from PRCA’s governance. And with the PRCA flirting with moving the NFR, the sport’s Super Bowl, to Osceola County in Central Florida starting in 2015, Las Vegas might be another city that starts its own major rodeo event outside of the PRCA banner. “It started a trend now. It’s a big concern for us,” Crawford said of rodeo cities starting non-PRCA sanctioned events. Crawford said talk of the sport’s biggest stars participating in an independent Las Vegas rodeo if the PRCA moves the NFR to Osceola County has surfaced. “We’d like to talk to Las Vegas,” Crawford said of the top cowboys. In the top cowboys’ Facebook statement, posted on the page, “Support Rodeo
Contestants,” Jones said “It’s time for a change.” “After an exhaustive effort of the top cowboys to help save the current structure, we now realize it’s time for a change and that there is a huge opportunity for the contestants of professional rodeo to work together to advance the sport,” Jones said in the Facebook statement. “We are extremely excited to showcase the best contestants at the best venues to give the fans the top quality action they want.” The page had 14,524 likes as of 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Brazile could not be reached for comment Tuesday. His wife, Shada Brazile, an NFR barrel racer, said she also signed the statement. Brazile did say in the Facebook statement: “We are forming a new organization to work together with committees and sponsors to make sure that the sport of professional rodeo continues to deliver the highest quality product to our great fans. … We appreciate what the PRCA has done for the sport in the past, but at this point we feel the time has come for the top contestants to be more directly involved in the future of our sport.” The Facebook statement does not address specifically why the cowboys want to leave the PRCA and does not bring up the topic of money. But Crawford said the cowboys’ proposal asked for adding two more cowboy representatives to the PRCA’s governing board, which currently has four cowboy reps out of the nine board members. Even though the cowboys’ proposal called for six cowboy (or contestant) reps on an 11member board, Crawford noted the proposal also suggested that an affirmative vote would take at least seven votes. That way, the six contestant reps could not control every vote, Crawford said. The PRCA rejected the cowboys’ proposal for two extra seats at the board table. The Facebook statement said the top cowboys united last month when the PRCA and Las Vegas Events were negotiating over whether the PRCA will continue staging the prized NFR in Las Vegas after 2014. The 10day rodeo, considered the Super Bowl of rodeos, has been held in Las Vegas for 29 years. The deal between the PRCA and Las Vegas Events expires after this year’s event at

the Thomas & Mack Center. “A group of the top contestants in the sport of professional rodeo have come together to make sure that the integrity of their profession is not lost in the negotiations over the millions of dollars created each year by the fans who flock to the NFR to see the top cowboys and cowgirls compete for the world championship buckles,” the Facebook statement said. On Dec. 15, the PRCA board rejected a Las Vegas Events offer to keep the NFR in Las Vegas for 10 years after 2014, but then the PRCA’s members also voted unanimously for the organization to continue negotiating with LVE. Meanwhile on the same day, Osceola County commissioners in central Florida outside Orlando made an offer to lure the NFR from Las Vegas, committing to $10 million more in prize money for the cowboys, a 24,000-seat rodeo arena and millions of dollars annually for marketing. PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman could not be reached for comment Tuesday, while Las Vegas Events President Pat Christenson declined to comment. Stressman said previously that he would send a counteroffer to Las Vegas Events this month on keeping the NFR in Las Vegas. Some rodeo observers said the cowboys abandoning the PRCA is reminiscent of the bull riders who bolted in 1992 to form Professional Bull Riders. “It’s like deja vu,” said Chris Woodruff, a former rodeo bareback rider who runs two retail country and western shows in Las Vegas during NFR. Bob Thain, a Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame rodeo producer from Reno and former PRCA board member, said this is not the first time cowboys have tried to leave the PRCA. Thain advised the cowboys: “People don’t come to see the individuals. People come for a good time and tickets that are not $200 like they are to watch the 49ers.”
Tom Threepersons The Story of Two Persons (PART 2)
Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson
om Threepersons was an Indian who became famous. Research reveals numerous stories claiming he was a Cherokee, or perhaps a Blood (Kainai) Indian; He was born in Oklahoma (1889) or perhaps Canada (1888); he was a mounted policeman, tracker and rodeo star in Canada; a famous lawman and prohibition officer in El Paso, Texas; a cowboy in New Mexico and a successful rancher in Canada; he had a leather gun holster named after him and won the World Bronc Riding Championship of 1912; his name was spelled “Threepersons” or perhaps “Three Persons” and he died poor in 1969, in Arizona, or possibly a rich man during 1949 in Canada. Many accomplishments (and contradictions) for only one man! How did he do so much? A closer examination of the facts reveals there were—ironically, TWO different “Tom Threepersons,” alive and making headlines at the same time. Although the names are spelled slightly different, their stories are often mistakenly jumbled into one. One was a rodeo star, who had a few encounters with the law— the other was a lawman, who had a few encounters with rodeo. Last month we talked about the Canadian rodeo star “Three Persons,” this month we examine “Threepersons,” the Southwestern lawman. Tom Threepersons was born in Vinita, Oklahoma (Indian Territory) on July 22, 1889. His parents were John and Belle, full
blooded Cherokees. Not much is known about this particular “Threepersons” between 1889 and 1916, however much has been speculated and this period of his life is often confused with that of “Three Persons” from Canada (who made headlines in 1912 as the World Champion Bronc Rider). However, from 1916 thru 1929, Threepersons the lawman accomplished a lot and much was written regarding his exploits. During this period, he became a legend and his name will forever be a part of Western history. In a Douglas, AZ newspaper dated February, 1916, it mentions a Threepersons competing in the saddle bronc riding at a rodeo there. It has been said that the Threepersons from the Southwest held a love of rodeo and was a pretty good bronc rider. This probably adds to the confusion often applied between him and the Canadian Three Persons. Our southwestern Tom, however, was never famous for rodeo like the Canadian Tom. Then, in March of 1916, Pancho Villa raided Columbus, New Mexico. This caused numerous troops to be sent to the border region. This act also helped propel Tom Threepersons onto a path that took him from being a local rodeo cowboy, to one of becoming a famous lawman. Tom joined the fray and was listed as a civilian scout for the Army under General Pershing—it was his first of many ventures into civic duty. Later, he spent time at Fort Bliss, breaking remount horses during World War I and this continued till about 1920. In 1919, the Volstead Act (prohibition) was voted in and the new law took effect January of 1920. This unpopular law created a new crime enterprise along the
border region between the United States and Mexico. Tom Threepersons spent the next nine years working for the El Paso police department, the El Paso County Sheriffs Department and the United States Prohibition Service battling this new crime. During which time, he became a legend. According to author, Jim Coffey, “While the men enforcing Prohibition are largely forgotten now, they were legends at the time. Many considered Frank Hamer of the Texas Rangers, the archetypical ‘twentieth century Ranger,’ totally fearless. D.A. (Jelly) Bryce, FBI agent, was so fast with a pistol that he actually ‘beat the drop’ on two separate occasions when outlaws already had their weapons out and trained on him. Manuel Gonzales, who made a name for himself as an honest Prohibition agent, would not back down with armed smugglers breaking the law. Many of these officers brought a frontier mentality to the war on booze. For some, it was a code of honor that prohibited asking or giving quarter; for others, it was unimpeachable honesty...Tom Threepersons was one of these men... A Texas Ranger captain once related, ‘El Paso was one of the toughest towns I’d ever been in. There was a gunfight for 236 straight nights.’ ” This was Tom Threepersons beat. While serving as a law enforcement official in and around El Paso, Threepersons was involved in several shootouts and hair raising encounters with outlaws and contrabandistas (smugglers from Mexico). Because of his, shoot first, ask questions later methods, he was often referred to as a throwback from the old West, and to this day is considered by many as the last of the old-time, frontier lawmen. Also, as a way to improve his ability to get his gun out quickly when needed, Tom is credited with designing the first true “quick draw” holster. He approached Sam Myers, an El Paso saddle maker about his design. Myers and Threepersons worked together, and by the mid-20s, the S.D.
Myers catalog offered the “Threepersons quick draw holster.” Myers later sold his business to El Paso Saddlery, and the holster was offered in their catalog as well. Today, an original Threepersons holster by S.D. Myers or a vintage one by El Paso Saddlery is a highly sought after western collectible. In spite of his ‘legend-in-his-own-time” status, Tom was reluctant to discuss most of his numerous gunfights publicly. He said once in an interview, “I never had any desire to be placed in a class with Wild Bill Hickok, Billy the Kid, or any of the so-called Western bad men. My desire was, and still is, to be classed as a respectable officer of the law and its enforcement.” When asked about the numerous death threats he received from contrabandistas, the brave Threepersons responded, “It doesn’t disturb my sleep.” However, smugglers were said to have put a $10,000 bounty on Tom’s head during the height of prohibition enforcement—a few unfortunate souls tried to collect it. In 1929, Tom decided to retire from law enforcement. He had taken two bullets— even one in the chest, and was run down
by a car—all in the line of duty. He sold his guns to an El Paso collector, a Mr. Powers, who also owned guns formerly belonging to Pat Garrett, John Wesley Hardin and John Selman (the man who killed John Wesley Hardin). Powers valued the guns of Tom Threepersons, equally, with those other Old West legends. Threepersons and his wife Lorene moved to the Arizona-New Mexico border region where he worked as a cowboy and she worked many years for the Silver City enterprise. Tom worked for many ranches over the next forty years in the rough NM/AZ border area and he died in Safford, Arizona on April 2, 1969. Both “Tom Three Persons” and “Tom Threepersons” were examples of Native Americans who left their permanent marks on history. Each was one of the first Natives to accomplish what they did. Although the two are easily confused because of their names, their stories are worthy of separate recognition—and each deserves his own distinct place in history.

Concho Belts — A Native Tradition The word concho, sometimes spelled concha, comes from the Spanish word meaning shell. Some of the first “conchos” were made of silver dollars and resembled a shell and it is commonly thought this is how the name came about. Although the Navajo (Dine’) probably borrowed the idea from Spaniards, the concho belt has become a long-standing Native tradition. Concho belts reportedly began appearing on the Navajo Nation in the 1870s. Other Native Americans including the Zuni and Hopi also make traditional concho belts. A fine concho belt will be made of sterling silver (or better), is often embellished with turquoise (or other gemstones) and is mounted on a good leather strap. At times, copper, nickel silver, or silver overlay is used, but these belts are usually thought of as lower grade and the price should be reflective. It is believed the Navajo first used concho belts at dance ceremonies, but by the early 1900’s, tourist demand had kicked in, and a new outlet for these ornate belts emerged. Today, thousands of belts are produced annually by Natives and nonNatives alike. Typically, genuine Indian handmade belts are more sought after by collectors and discerning jewelry buyers. The belts can worn by both men and women. It is important to deal with a reputable dealer when considering a concho belt as costs can range into thousands of dollars depending upon the craftsmanship, amount of silver and rarity of turquoise or gemstones used. Western Trading Post, located at 403 N. Florence St. in historic downtown Casa Grande, AZ, traces its roots back to 1877 and offers a nice selection of genuine concho belts at affordable pricing.

Over the two days, December 21st and 22nd in Tulsa Oklahoma, things heated up at the Ford Truck Arena as some of the toughest calf ropers and barrel racers in North America gathered to make their run at the over $140,000 in cash and prizes that were awarded. The action started a little early this year with the addition of the Ultimate Calf Ropings, American Qualifier Calf Roping in the Mustang Arena next door on Friday the 20th. Everywhere you looked there was calf roping, and even if you couldn’t make it to the event in person you could watch it on the live webcasting. The webcast was a nice addition, as there were 10,808 hits that watched the action over the internet. The events provided some tough calf roping and some smoking fast runs in both the calf roping and barrel racing. At the end of the day on Saturday is was Ryan Jarrett who totaled up the most money won, as he went home the 2013 Mike Johnson World’s Richest Calf Roping Champion. When the barrels were picked up on Saturday and the times were totaled, it was Katelyn McLeod that beat the pack to claim the Sherrylynn
Johnson Invitational Barrel Race Champion title. New this year on Sunday was the Mike Johnson’s World’s Richest Junior Calf Roping and Sherrylynn Johnson’s Invitational Junior Barrel Race. The newly crowned champions for the first year’s events were Tyler Milligan as the 17 and under Calf Roping Champion and Jackie Ganter as the Sherrylynn Johnson 17 and under Barrel Racing Champion for 2013. It was another great year of calf roping and barrel racing at this event as Mike and Sherrylynn Johnson provided a first class production. Mike and Sherrylynn go above and beyond to make this an event that contestants will remember and look forward to putting on the calendar for next year. With this year’s addition of the junior events, it only goes to show the commitment that the Johnson’s have to supporting the sport of calf roping and barrel racing. Thank you!

he 12th Annual “Cinch” Rising Stars Calf Roping rallied through another awesome year as it hosted 667 ropers from across the United States and Canada who came to rope for the first ever $5,000 added money which brought this year’s total cash payout to over $95,000. The total number of entries were up, which is our goal each and every year, and much of that can be contributed to many of our newest added features. One of the biggest hits was the new video/replay board where the kids and parents could watch each run as it was happening as well as in slow motion. Sponsor logos and commercials were displayed throughout the event on the board. Oxbow saddles were awarded to the Average champions, custom rope cans to Fastest Time winners, Broken Arrow Silver Co. buckles to Go Round winners as well as the Reserve Tiedown youngest roper. The youngest Tiedown roper saddle went to 8 year old Chance Fleming from Bloomfield, Iowa and was once again donated by Oxbow Tack. Willard Ropes presented the piggin strings for all Tiedown Short Go contestants, and Nothin But Neck breakaways went to all Short Go Breakaway ropers. The Reserve Champion in the 16-19 Tiedown received custom spurs donated by Gordy Alderson and K Bar F Hatters of Sallisaw, Ok. once again donated a 100X hat to the 16-19 Tiedown Short Go winner. NEO College of Miami, Ok. awarded a $4,000 scholarship to each of the
Average winners in the 19 & Under Girls Breakaway and the 16-19 boys Tiedown. Of course without the continued support of our generous sponsors, none of these exceptional prizes would be possible. From our Platinum Plus Sponsors like Jason’s Deli, WW, and Oxbow Tack, to the Bronze Star Sponsors, we appreciate all, both big and small, that help continue to make the Rising Stars Cyle Denison Calf Roping bigger and better 16-19 Boys TD each year. We would like to welcome our Champion - Marty Yates, 33.9 newest sponsor, Cinch, and thank them Fastest Calf - Westyn Hughes, 7.5 for becoming the official Title Sponsor All Star Roping Champion - Michael Otero, 27.5 for the Rising Stars Calf Roping.

HAPPY VALENTINEâ€™S DAY
Taos Muncy Bronc Party
he Taos Muncy Bronc Party was held December 14 - 15, 2013 at the Southwest Event Center in Los Lunas, NM. The clinic was a huge success thanks to the many participants and volunteers. The Bronc Party was an idea to help support and foster Saddle Bronc riders in New Mexico. The goal for this event was to encourage more Bronc riders to “break out”, in the sport and also to provide coaching for the riders already competing. With that goal in mind, over 110 horses were bucked during the weekend event. Bronc riders of all skill levels, from beginners to professional participated. The beginners leaned some of the fundamental training required to get started out right in the sport, as some of the more professional riders got help in polishing their riding style. The sport of rodeo was at its best as all the riders supported and taught one another. Coaches from New Mexico State University and Tucumcari and several seasoned bronc riders added to the wealth of talent teaching at the clinic. All the participants improved in their riding skills over the two days and walked away ready to attend the next one. Horses were supplied by New Mexico State University, Darrel Triplett, Casey Collumes, Shawn Wimberly and Nunn’s Frontier Rodeo Company. Volunteer’s included Marty Carrasco, Chase Carrasco, Casey Collum, Charlie Encinas, Jim D Brown, GT Nunn, Stacie Stanbrough, Tiger Stangrough, Chance Barnes, Johnny Muncy, Blain Muncy, Keith Sandy and Kassandra Smith. A special thanks to Dennis Chavez for the donation of the Southwest Event Center for the entire weekend. Thanks you to everyone and already marking the calendar for another event like this in 2014. Look for details in future issues of The All-Around.
Ringing in the New Year!
he bells were ringing in the New Year in Farmington on January 10 – 11, but it wasn’t New Year’s bells it was bull bells. It was the 19th Annual Baca Rodeo Bares, Broncs and Bulls Spectacular. What a great pen of bucking stock and the cowboys took advantage of that. Together it made for an event you did not want to miss. McGee Park in Farmington, New Mexico was once again the host for the Spectacular and like years past, the seats filled up. The two day event, January 10th and 11th was full of some of the best bucking horse and bull riding action in the southwest. As always the crowd was treated to the colorful and amazing opening ceremonies that included a Special Tribute to America with a flag presentation featuring Cowboy and Military Making the claim to the championship of the bareback riding was Earl Tsosie Jr. from Indian Wells Arizona. He scored 80 points to win the event. Kyle Charlie, as he did last year, claimed the runner-up position in the bareback riding with a 75 point ride. In the Saddle Bronc Riding it was the
local cowboy Chance Barns from Farmington that took home the first place prize money scoring 77 points. Tanner Lockhart from Lewis, Colorado was a close second with the score of 74. It was only two points that separated the winners in the bull riding. Cody Strite from McIntosh, New Mexico posted an 80 point ride to claim the championship.

Colorado Versus the World Showcases Rodeo Athletes at National Western By Susan Kanode For the National Western Stock Show
or three consecutive years, the National Western Stock Show has kicked off their celebration with Colorado’s richest one day rodeo with bareback riding, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, women’s barrel racing and bull riding. Action started in the Denver Coliseum with world contestants competing at the morning performance. They represented rodeos in Fort Worth, Texas; Rapid City, S.D.; San Angelo, Texas; Austin, Texas; Houston, Texas; Guymon, Okla.; North Platte, Neb.; Calgary, Alberta; Cheyenne, Wyo.; and Dodge City, Kan. Then 10 contestants from Colorado rodeos including Denver’s National Western Stock Show; Estes Park; Elizabeth; Greeley; Colorado Springs; Loveland; and Pueblo competed hoping to advance to Saturday’s evening performance. The four contestants with the highest scores and fastest times from each of those performances advanced to Saturday evening for the Colorado verses the World challenge. Those four were narrowed down to two, one from the Colorado contingent and one from the world for a winner take all $8,000 check. There is nowhere else that Richmond Champion from The Woodlands would rather be than here on opening Saturday. Last year, the college student had an 87 point effort to win the championship in bareback riding representing the National Western. This year, Champion competed on behalf of the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo in Colorado Springs but still took the title for Colorado. Along the way, he set a new arena record in the Denver Coliseum with an 92 point effort aboard Calgary Stampede’s great mare Princess Warrior. “I was a little behind at the beginning of the ride, but when I caught up with her, it felt awesome,” Champion said. “That’s the highest score I’ve ever gotten, but to be honest, it could have been a 50 and I still would have been
happy because I would have gotten the check. It’s a great way to start out 2014 and I hope I will be back here doing the same thing next year.” Casey Martin also knows what it is like to win in the Denver Coliseum. He won the steer wrestling at last year’s Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo and represented the National Western through all three rounds of competition here today. He finished in fourth place in the Matinee to advance to the semi-finals. He then had the fastest time in the semi-finals at 4.17 seconds. Martin, who is from Sulphur, La., was up against Tyler Waguespack, from Gonzales, La., who represented the World team for San Angelo, Texas.

ECJRA Contestants take time for a group photo
t was great weather and great rodeo action as the first rodeo of the 2014 ECJRA Rodeo Series took place in Artesia New Mexico on January 11th and 12th. Some of the finest youth competitors in the southeast part of New Mexico made their way to the Artesia Horse Council Arena to start out the year and show off their rodeo talent. Cowboys and cowgirls competed in age groups from 5 and under all the way to the 16 to 19 year old age group, there was even an open division that gave mom or dad a chance to get back in the saddle. No matter what the age, it was a great weekend and a great start to the ECJRA 2014 rodeo season. Eddy County Junior Rodeo Association January 11-12, 2014, Artesia, NM 5 & Under Barrels 1/11 1.

to me this whole divide is about the NFR and who is going to have control over it. I would gladly join in the fight for either the PRCA proper or the fracturing segment of the cowboys if it weren’t for the giant elephant in the room that apparently only I can see. The sport is dying, and though it may be a slow death, and it may be one that is masked by the popularity and success of the NFR… it’s dying. The venue for the NFR may change, more money may be added, the structure of the board may be changed to insure contestants have a larger voice in the direction of the association, but none of that is really going to make much difference if the real problems aren’t recognized and some serious efforts put in place to address them. I think it goes back to the fundamental organizational structure. I know its unpopular among contestants to think that the organizational (sanctioning) body is a “for profit” entity, but anything else, and it’s never going to be soundly operated. As distasteful as it may be for a contestant to think that any portion of his hard-earned dollar might go into the pocket of a capitalist… it’s the only
sound way. The problem with the PRCA, and even those who look to break away from it, is that logic and best-practice decisions are based on emotions and personal agendas. That is not to say that personal agendas may not be sincerely vested towards the good of the organization, but they all too often become distorted or compromised over time… and THAT is a fact. The current situation serves as a perfect example. This appears to be nothing more than a money grab… or power grab… by both sides. And yet imagine if you were the “owner” of the PRCA. If you were a good one, I’m pretty sure you would be spending a lot time paying attention to what is happening at the grassroots level of the sport and finding ways to insure there is a steady stream of talent in the rodeo pipeline for generations to come. Frankly, I can’t get behind either side because all I can see is a bunch of ducks fighting it out over a loaf of bread. As an onlooker, I’m left to wonder, “What are they going to do when that loaf is gone?” Think about it…

AIRCA’s Mission The all Indian Rodeo Association acknowledges our Indian and western heritage culture and tradition as we promote organized professional entertainment as rodeo. The AIRCA is the choice of champions for contestants, sponsors and fans throughout Indian country in the United States and Canada. Established in 1957 AIRCA was inspired by visionary cowboys and cowgirls who embraced the values and traditions of sheepherder, ranchers, and farmers who lived freely on the open range of the Navajo Nation many years ago. The authenticity of their legacy is immortalized by AIRCA. The past 56 years is not only about humble beginnings, blazing a trail and endurance, but also about building a strong beacon of hope that helps preserve a way of life and soul of the Navajo Nation and Native America. In its 57th year AIRCA provides choice/opportunities to members. The opportunity to gain an IIFR spot through wild card basic The opportunity for various championships throughout the season in at least 24 rodeos The opportunity for championship in the traditional year-end association standings The opportunity for championship in eleven events at IIFR in San Carlos Arizona The opportunity for participation in the annual awards celebrate banquet and dance And more i.e. community outreach work in partnership with health programs and partnerships with schools Believing in the words of our elders who said, “Self-esteem through livestock awareness, positive competition and rodeo championship develops wholesome individuals that lead to strong families that make strong Indian nations,” the oldest and largest organized Indian rodeo association also provides student scholarships to selected member(s) of the IJRA.

Kelsey Lutjen & KN Fabs Gift Of Fame Shine at Greg Olson Memorial Futurity Courtesy or Tanya Randall and barrelracingreport.com
elsey Lutjen and KN Fabs Gift Of Fame (“J Lo”) have won nearly $40,000 at the Arizona futurities the first three weeks of January. They started off winning $1,308 for the New Year’s Bustin Out Futurity Championship. They followed it up with a $6,390 Reserve Championship at the Classic Equine Futurity, by the narrowest of margins—just 1/1000ths of a second. The bulk of their earnings, an impressive $31,462, came just this past weekend by winning the 15th Annual Greg Olson Memorial Futurity and Slot Race, held Jan. 9-11 in Buckeye, Ariz. They won the first go with an impressive 16.999 and took fourth in the second with a 17.210 for the average victory. continued on page 66

“I was 281 out this weekend and it had gotten fast,” explained Lutjen, who hails from Casa Grande, Ariz. “She’d been stepping a half-stride past her first barrel every run. I normally don’t run her in spurs, but I put my little nubby spurs on and gave her a little bit bigger arc to the first barrel and that’s when she ran the 16.9. The second run, I could only think to keep the barrels up because I knew she would clock if she was smooth.” Lutjen, who is sponsored by Usher Brands, RES Boots, Panhandle Slim, Flair Nasal Strips, Formula 1 Noni and Silver Lining Herbs, was able to add $20,000 to her $11,462 by winning the $45,000 Slot Race. Her friend and client Teri Murphy had encouraged her to enter the Slot Race after doing so well the previous two weekends. “I knew what I had but that was a lot of money,” said Lutjen, who was able to obtain a spot in the Slot Race from Busby Quarter Horses. “I’m just in college and have to pay for my stuff myself. After she had done so good the weekend before, Teri Murphy told me she’s won all that money, to reinvest it because she had a feeling that it would all work out. She was right.” Bred by Kenny Nichols, Waco, Texas, J Lo, a 5-year-old Palomino mare, is by Nichols’ stallion Frenchmans Fabulous, a leading sire and performer. She is out of Mistys Dash Of Fame, a daughter of Dash Ta Fame out of the great mare Misty Blurr, by Murrtheblurr (TB), making J Lo a full sister to Old

Fort Days Futurity Champion. KN Fabs Mist Of Fame, owned by Robin Weaver, Mahaffey, Pa and also bred by Kenny Nichols. Although Lutjen is the papered owner, she partners with Nichols and Dale Barron on the mare. “Kenny had actually saved her to be a rope horse,” said Lutjen. “He ended up sending her to me to run barrels on and we decided to go ahead and futurity on her this year.” A decorated all-around hand, Lutjen started riding J Lo in the fall of the mare’s third year. “I had her cruising through the barrels and then that summer I sent her up to Idaho with my boyfriend and he rode her on the ranch some,” said Lutjen, who credit’s Jo Lynn and Patsy Alexander, Sherry Cervi’s sister and niece, for stamping her program. “She didn’t even see the barrels. I brought her back and finished her out on the barrels this fall. She made really fast. She’s just really smart.” Lutjen had always wanted to ride a Frenchmans Fabulous (“Fab”), and she first got the opportunity to ride the stallion himself when Nichols had sent the horse to Arizona for his father, Nick. “I went to go rope with Nick and he asked if I wanted to head a few steers on Fab,” she said. “After that, I just had to take him around the barrels. We had a video of it and sent it to Kenny.” The next thing she knew, Lutjen had Fab to ride at her high school rodeos. She used the stallion in heading, breakaway roping, and barrel racing. Started tying goats off the stallion after her friend Jordan Bassett suggested it. “I was thinking with him being a stud that it wasn’t probably wasn’t an ideal thing,” she said. “I won the National High School Finals in the goat tying with him in 2012.” Fab also earned National Reserve High School Rodeo Girl’s AQHA Horse of the Year honors and Arizona High School Rodeo Girl’s AQHA Horse of the Year. Since then, Lutjen’s gone on to win with several of Fab’s offspring. She won the Amateur Futurity in 2012 with KN Fabulous N Khaki, and she won the second round of the goat tying at the College National Finals Rodeo off of KN Fabulous Chit Chat, who also serves as Kelsey’s head horse and is a barrel horse for Lutjen’s mother Lisa. Lutjen, a sophomore ag business major at Central Arizona College in Casa Grande, hopes to go to the bigger futurities and finish out the futurity year with J Lo. “I’ve just gone to the Arizona futurities before because they’re close,” she said. “I’m going to Diamonds & Dirt. I’d really love to go Washington in April. I’d like to start taking her to some rodeos this summer. She’s got a great mind, but she’s very cocky. She knows when she’s done good.” Finishing out her training in the roping arena is also on the agenda. “I’ve heeled on her a little bit, but eventually I’d love her to be a head horse,” she said. “But, I don’t want to do that until her futurity year is over. I think the roping has made a big difference with her. Kenny’s always after me to rope on them.” Lutjen is eternally grateful to Nichols and Barron for entrusting her with J Lo. “Kenny and Dale have been awesome,” she said. “They’ve been 100 percent supportive. They’ve been really good to me. I don’t have the money to pay $20,000 for babies that aren’t even broke. Without them it wouldn’t be possible. They’ve trusted me with their horses. Kenny’s trusted me with his stud. They’ve definitely been there for me and made sure I was on the nicest horses possible.”

s an admirer of old bits and spurs I bought a fancy catalog for an estate auction of a very rich man who was a collector of collections. The sale featured his fine art, furniture, cars, Indian blankets, saddles, silverware, dishes, bits, spurs and a host of other items. As a potential bidder I had to pay $20 just to get the catalog. Can you imagine if a bull breeder tried to charge a potential customer for his or her sale catalog? No one would show up for the sale, and if they did I’m quite sure that such a greedy person might also charge for the traditionally-free lunch. The company that handled the sale usually sells art so the catalog was like no other I’d seen. It read like the sale manager was allergic to lawyers because after every item description in capital letters were the words: “YOUR BID INDICATES ACCEPTANCE OF ALL OUR CONDITIONS OF SALE. ALL
SALES FINAL.” If those words appeared after every description of a horse in a sale the auctioneer would never get a bid. No one should ever complain about the commission they pay to sell or buy livestock because in this auction 20% of the hammer price was added right on top. If you didn’t have any money and charged your purchase on a credit card it was an extra 2.5%. Add to that the applicable sales tax and the buyer would have to pay over 30% on top of what he bid! And this doesn’t count what the seller had to pay the sale manager in commission! Hey, it’s good work if you can get it, but it kinda makes the commission you pay at the auction market seem downright puny, doesn’t it? Another big difference was that an estimated selling range was listed for every lot, I suppose for those folks who have no idea what they’re doing. A friend of mine who is a leading authority on old
www.RedBluffBuckles.com P.O. Box 98 • Continental Divide, NM 87312 PH: 505-862-7042 • FAX: 505-862-7646 RedBluff@advantas.net
bits and spurs was asked to give his opinion on what they were worth and his estimates were then lowered by the sale manager so as to not scare off any buyers. Some lots brought ten times more than the estimates. Just think what might happen to a cow buyer who missed that badly. It got me to thinking, what if bull and horse sale catalogs were written up like art? Here’s how a typical description might read: Lot # 26, Nude bull by Adonis, early 21st century, with legible monogram on left hip. Other marks and brands obliterated or reworked. Condition: Areas of leather show scratches, rubbed wear, cracks and dents one would expect to see on a bull of this era. White spot in eye indicates early repair. There is some minor warping on the back with dirt accumulation and stains found in cracks. Small loss to ears attributable to frost bite, not Van Gogh. In need of major repair and/or restoration. Provenance: Previously shown at the American Royal, Cow Palace and Houston. Letter of authenticity from the American Angus Association. Not responsible for anything that is broken during shipping. Estimated selling price: $300 to $1,000. (Wink, wink.) Lot #12- Knothead, Pinto gelding from mid to late 20th century with unreadable tattoo on upper lip. Acquired by present owner from Blowhard Bill’s Broncs. Condition: Overall poor condition with severe dust accumulation, cracks in feet, scattered dents and abrasions commensurate with age and use. 221,000 miles on the odometer and one leg is shorter than the others. Guaranteed only to be a horse, with nothing else implied or suggested. Provenance: This horse was purchased in last year’s sale, threw the rider before they got home, causing a broken pelvis, leg and arm in three places. No loader is provided so good luck with that. Reference to particular defects does not imply the absence of others. Not responsible for errors and/or omissions. Any and all lawsuits to be adjudicated in jurisdiction of sale. Not responsible for any comments made from the auction block. Estimated Selling Price: Dependent on price of horse meat in Canada or Mexico. ALL SALES FINAL. We repeat, ALL SALES FINAL! wwwLeePittsbooks.com
