Competitorial A

lthough I don’t miss the heat of July, I am already missing the length of the midsummer days. Seems like just yesterday it was the Memorial Day weekend and now we’re just one Labor Day away from the end of the summer season. The first sign that summer’s end is near is, of course, the USTRC Southwest Regional Finals held a couple weeks ago. Nothing like a roping that pays out over $300,000 in cash to get your attention. One of the crown jewel events on the USTRC schedule, it’s an event that represents everything the modern era of team roping has to offer. It has a great payout, offers great prizes, and is produced with the precision and efficiency for which the USTRC is known. It’s a great event to be sure. Personally I find it mind-boggling that the event left Albuquerque and moved to Clovis, NM. Nothing wrong with Clovis itself, and certainly the facility is more accommodating for both team ropers and the production effort… but moving that event? It was a mistake on so many levels I don’t even know where to begin. I get it… the facility at the NM Expo is one that is a logistic nightmare from a production standpoint. It always has been … even when the event was bigger than it is now. And I understand, too, as a roper it was equally aggravating getting to, and getting around inside

the venue. And then there was the lack of accommodations once you DID get there. It was miserable. Yes, I know I’m probably biased since it was just a short drive from my house into Albuquerque and the Expo, and I didn’t have to deal with the stalls like most of the ropers. Still, that event needed to be in Albuquerque, even if it had to be moved from the EXPO… although I don’t know where they could have moved it to. I think the blame for moving the event can be equally divided between the USTRC, the Expo (operated disastrously by the state of NM), and the City of Albuquerque. The Expo has been mismanaged for decades. I don’t think that’s in dispute. It’s pretty obvious the emphasis is on the newly constructed casino at the location. Even the live horse racing has seemingly become only a gateway into the justification for the casino. I understand the casino is the “golden egg,” but it’s a shame to see the rest of the Expo/ fairgrounds suffer while the state pours money into the construction of a new casino… but that’s NM politics. The real loser is probably the city itself. Who knows how many tens of thousands of dollars in economic impact the event provided continued on page 61

T

he USTRC moved in to Clovis, New Mexico and the Curry County Special Events Center for the Southwest Regional Finals. The team roping began on August 1, 2013 and ran through the 4th. Team ropers from all over the Southwest came to enjoy the event. The Open Division was first on the agenda. The team of Chris Francis from Las Vegas, New Mexico and Cade Passig from Capitan, New Mexico were the high team back. They qualified to the short round with a time of 30.08 seconds on four steers and needed to be 8.21 seconds on their last steer for the win. After the flag dropped they had posted a time of 7.69 seconds and finished the roping in first place. “We don’t really have a lot of really good Open ropings to go to in New Mexico,” said Francis. “This is the best one around and I wouldn’t miss this roping.” The team took home $5,000, trophy Gist bits and points for the Priefert US Open Tour. “I was really fortunate to have some good partners and roped really consistent today,” said Passig. “This was a good win for us and I am excited.” Second place in the roping went to Josh Morris from Lazbuddie, Texas and Wesley Thorp from Throckmorton, Texas with a time of 38.30 seconds on five steers. Third place was Kyle Roberts from Durango, Colorado and Bode Baize from Anthony, New Mexico. Brady Payne from Gilbert, Arizona and Trevor Kirchenschlager from Yuma, Colorado

won the Incentive Average. Monroe Timberlake and Blain Bradley both from Hereford, Texas were the third high team back in the short round of the #15 Preliminary. They finished the roping in first place with a time of 33.43 seconds on four steers. The win gave them $3,132, trophy Gist bits and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place in the roping was Chase Massengill from Santa Fe, New Mexico and Jessie Haynie from Fairacres, New Mexico with a time of 34.56 seconds on four steers. Third place in the Average was Bode Baize and Corban Livingston, while fourth went to Jarrett Rogers and Livingston. The team roping action inside the arena really heated up in the #15 ShootOut. Chase Massengill and Eddie Nieto qualified to the short round in the number one position. “This was a really big win for me and came at a good time,” said Massengill. “This is a good event and one I try to make each year.” They finished the roping with a time of 29.40 seconds on four steers and won first place. They received $5,866, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. “I was excited about the win. I just #15 Preliminary wanted to be Monroe Timberlake (Hereford, TX) / Blain Bradley (Hereford, TX), consistent and stay 33.43 on 4, $3,132 and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings

Third place went to Adam Esquibell and Brandon Baca with a time of 31.53 seconds on four steers. The fourth place finishers were Clay Sieber and Wesley Thorp. In the #13 Preliminary the husband/wife team of Barrie and Brad Smith from Stephenville, Texas came from the third high back position to win first place in the Average. They were 33.02 seconds on four steers and won $4,562, trophy Gist bits, and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place in the Average was Darin Williams from Amarillo, Texas and Clayton Ward from Dalhart, Texas. Third place in the aveage was Wallace Townsend from Cache, Oklahoma and Kent Thiessen from Elk City, Oklahoma. The final roping of the first day of the Southwest Regional Finals was the #13 Shoot-Out. A team from the Petroplex of Texas took the top honors.

ALL-AROUND

National Champions Crowned at NHSFR

A

fter a week of competition that featured nearly 1,500 contestants from all across the United States, Canada and Australia, the 2013 National High School Finals Rodeo National Champions were crowned on Saturday night at the Sweetwater Events Complex in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Idaho’s Garrett Smith made history when he became the first three-time NHSFR All-Around Cowboy. Garrett won his titles in consecutive years (201113) and even picked up a Rookie AllAround Cowboy title as a freshman in 2010. This year, he competed at the NHSFR in six events, earning a trip to the short round in boys cutting (where he finished second overall), steer wrestling (sixth overall and won the short round) and saddle bronc riding (fourth). For the second straight year, a freshman won the All-Around Cowgirl

title as Raelee Self of Texas picked up the win after taking the top spot in pole bending and finishing seventh in barrel racing. She finished just ahead of fellow Texas pole bender/barrel racer/freshman Sissy Winn. Raelee was the pole bending champion at the 2012 National Junior High Finals Rodeo in Gallup, N.M. The top 20 contestants based on their two-head average times and scores advanced to the short round on Saturday night, where they competed in front of a packed house and cameras from RFDTV’s Cinch Highschool Rodeo Tour. National Champions were determined by their three-head average scores and earned awards that included college scholarships, custom Gist Silversmiths buckles, Tod Slone saddles, as well as products from Cinch Jeans and Shirts, Ariat Boots, Resistol Hats, Professional’s Choice and more.

World Series Qualifier August 2-4, 2013 Show Low, AZ Linden Valley Arena

Y

es it did rain on Friday, but only in the Southwest can you cancel a roping because of rain on Friday and have to water the arena Saturday to keep the dust downâ&#x20AC;Ś..that is just what happened at The Roping Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Series Qualifier in Show Low, AZ at the Linden Valley Arena, August 2-4. The rain moved in on Friday afternoon and postponed the #12, but Saturday started out with sunshine and the rescheduled #12. By that afternoon the water truck was back out in the arena and all the other ropings were back on track. Despite the little bit of rescheduling the weekend went smooth. The cattle were good and the production went smoothly. The Roping Company can chalk up another great production to their list.

I

t was Friday night, August 9, 2013 in Belen, New Mexico at the Belen Sheriff’s Posse Café and at 5:30 p.m. the goat ropers started lining up. Lining up to the tune of 674 teams. That was how many teams started the roping at 6:30 p.m. Friday night. Not all of them made it to the end of the roping because the last goat was roped Saturday morning at 5:30 a.m., but the tough stayed with it and it paid off. The roping consisted of two rounds with the top 50 teams making it back to the short round. There was plenty of action in the goat roping arena and you had better be paying attention because a good portion of the times were under 2 seconds. In addition to the main roping there were a couple of breaks for everyone to watch the Special Elimination Match Roping and participate in the Calcutta’s. The first match roping took place at 6:00 p.m. and the last match roping at 4:30 a.m. When the last goat was roped the winners of the match were John English and Paul Guiterrez. They ended up roping a total of nine goats and won $100 a man and the option to take home an Alpaca. In between the match ropings it was back to running through the 674 teams in the main roping. As the sun started to rise above the East Mountains the short round concluded with the winning team of John English and Seth Hall clocking the fastest time on three of

10.038 seconds and took home $870 in prize money. The moment everyone was waiting for was the winner of the 1991 Chevrolet ¾ ton pick-up. After Mason Georges and crew ended up adding up all the points the roper that drove away in the truck was John English. What a great event and complements to all the sponsors and to Mason Georges of M & S Livestock for putting this event together. This was one of the first “Rope for the Truck Goat Ropings” in the southwest if not all of the US, but we are sure it won’t be the last. Make sure to look for details in The All-Around for upcoming events from M & S Livestock or give Mason a call at 505-835-3505. Thank you to all the sponsors and contestants for making this such a successful event!

Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson

Early Native American Indians in Rodeo

T

owns such as Prescott, Arizona claim to have the world’s oldest rodeo (started in 1888). Payson, Arizona argues they have the world’s oldest continuous rodeo (started in 1884). Then there is Pecos, Texas who claims the right to the world’s first rodeo (1883) but history tells us that William F. Cody (AKA Buffalo Bill) staged his first Wild West Show (which also had rodeo events) in 1882 at North Platte, Nebraska. Santa Fe, New Mexico has a stronger claim to the first rodeo based on a letter written by Captain Mayne Reid from Santa Fe dated 1847 which speaks of rodeo events there during a roundup celebration. The Mexican Vaqueros influenced the American Cowboy with their clothing, language, traditions and equipment, which in turn, influenced the sport of rodeo. You hear a lot about the Cowboys and Vaqueros (or at least their influence) with regards to rodeo history, but most do not realize the Native American Indian was right there from the beginning as well. Many of the first “Vaqueros” were actually Indians forced into servitude

Jackson Sundown

along with the working class “Peons” in Mexico, who were all controlled by the ruling class Spaniards. Most of the Vaqueros found in the Southwest when the White Europeans arrived were actually a mix of those early Indians and Peons. These were the people who originally founded rodeo and many of the cowboy traditions we treasure today. Even if you look at rodeo from a more traditional or “organized” view—there were Indians in Buffalo Bill Cody’s wild west show (probably the earliest show organized by a white man) from the start. The Native Americans who took part in the show were mostly Plains Indians such as the Pawnee and Sioux, but there were many other tribes as well. They participated in staged “Indian Races” and historic battles, and often appeared in scenes attacking settlers in which their savagery and wildness was played up to the enjoyment of the crowd. They also performed dances, such as the Sioux Ghost Dance. The Native Americans always wore their best costumes and full war paint. Cody treated them with respect—the extent of which

was demonstrated when he named the Indians as “the former foe, present friend of the American.” Probably the best known Indian in the show was Sitting Bull who joined for a period of time and was a star attraction alongside Annie Oakley. During his time at the show, Sitting Bull was introduced to President Grover Cleveland, traveled to Europe and became personal friends with Buffalo Bill. Other familiar Native Americans names who performed at various times in the show were Chief Joseph (the famous Nez Perce Chief), Geronimo (the famous Apache warrior) and Rain in the Face (a Lakota who reportedly fought Custer at the Little Bighorn). Jackson Sundown (born in 1863) was probably the first Native American to become famous for preforming events in rodeo other than playing an Indian— Sundown rode broncs. He was about fourteen when he participated in the Nez Perce War of 1877 (he was said to be Chief Joseph’s nephew). Afterwards, wounded, he escaped to Canada with a small group of


THE

SEPTEMBER 2013

ALL-AROUND

warriors who took refuge with Sitting Bull’s camp. Sundown later came back to the United States and eventually settled in Idaho on the Flathead reservation where he raised a family. During this time he became known as a superb horseman and he raised and trained horses for money. At the advanced age of his early forties, he started going to rodeos and wild west shows, mostly competing in bronc riding. He became a favorite at these rodeos because he wore his hair in a traditional pompadour with braids tied under his chin and he always wore bright colored shirts and angora chaps—he was quite a site to behold. Sundown had much success as a rodeo hand. It has been reported that other contestants sometimes pulled out of rodeos because he was entered (fear of being beaten by an Indian) and at times stock owners would pull their stock if Sundown drew them. He had the reputation of riding buckers to a stop and taking any future buck right

out of them. As a result, some rodeo producers hired Sundown to put on exhibition rides to entertain the crowds instead. In 1911, he placed third at the Pendleton, Oregon Roundup in a controversial decision whereby he and George Fletcher (a Black man) and John Spain (a White man) all ended up in the final round together. Spain won the title, but it was said that both Sundown and Fletcher were not treated fairly (probably due to prejudice). In 1915, (at age fifty-two) he once again placed third at Pendleton. He decided to retire after that, but sculptor, Alexander Proctor (who was working on a sculpture of Sundown at the time), persuaded him to enter the 1916 Roundup in Pendleton if he would pay his entry fees. Sundown made it to the finals with two other cowboys (Rufus Rollen and Bob Hall). Rollen and Hall both made great rides, then it was time for Sundown. When the blindfold was pulled for that final ride, all those years

31

of rodeo and horseback experience showed up for display. It has been written that Sundown became one with the bronc and was even fanning his hat at the horse as he made a legendary ride. At the end of the ride, Jackson Sundown, was the 1916 (and first Indian) World Champion Bronc Rider! He had used his old range saddle (as he always did) and when the new trophy saddle was awarded, he was asked what he would like engraved on the silver plate—he told them, “Please put wife’s name on it.” Since his death in 1923, Jackson Sundown has been inducted into just about every sports hall of fame related to rodeo you can imagine. You may not realize it, but the logo used by the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is a rendition of a silhouette of an old photo of Sundown, taken at Pendleton in about 1916—making him the most viewed Indian Cowboy ever!

It Was All About Rodeo in Galisteo, NM!

W

hen it comes to rodeo, it doesn’t get much more western then the Rodeo de Galisteo. This year marked the 42nd year for the event and it was just a western as the first time it was held in 1971. The Rodeo de Galisteo took place on July 20 and 21 this year and provided some great rodeo entertainment as well as some of the top talent in rodeo from across the Southwest. The cars, pickups and horse trailers filled the parking lot at the rodeo grounds in Galisteo. If you are a contestant, the rodeo in Galisteo has become known as one of the best rodeos of the mid-summer rodeo season. This year held true to the fact as well as providing some great rodeo action for all the spectators.

Bringing on the Heat! his year’s Heat IV started out a little muddy, but despite 4 inches of standing water in the arena on Friday night, the event was a huge success. Saturday morning the water pumps rolled in and there was a two hour delay while the crew pumped the water out of the arena and got the arena ground back into working order. In addition to the rain on Friday The Dirty Bourbon Kick Off Party got things started off in style. The $300 added money Mechanical Bull Riding drew a crowd, along with the dance contest and ticket giveaways. On Saturday there was no better place to be than The Valencia County Sheriff’s Posse Arena in Belen, NM to watch some great bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding along with the infamous bikini barrel race. Other special attractions this year included the Mini Bull Riding,

Brody Baca -The Mini Bareback Rider, Wild Pony Beer Garden, Bucking Horse Stampede and the National Guard’s Flag Tribute “Cowboy Style”. The Heat IV - Bikini Barrel Race and Rough Stock Challenge continues to bring some top notch entertainment and rodeo talent to what has become a marquee event for the area. This year, as years past contestants competed for the $500 in added money in all three rough stock events, as well as the Bikini Barrel Race. In addition, there were buckles awarded in each “D” of the barrel race and a trophy saddle awarded to the fastest barrel racer wearing a bikini. The saddle winner this year was Shiann Erwin. The year’s event despite the rain definitely “brought on the heat”! You can mark your calendar for next year and also count on the Baca Rodeo Company making next year even more exciting.

78 Years of Tradition, Fun and Rodeo!

F

or the past 78 years the Durango Fiesta Days and Rodeo has been the place to be during the summer in Colorado and has continued to offer cowboys and cowgirls an event that is second to none on the rodeo trail. This year was no different. The event once again maintained the quality that it is known for and hosted contestants to a great rodeo and provided a great event in the cool mountain region of Southwest Colorado. The week-long fiesta in Durango was all about the western heritage of the fourcorners area. Keeping on track with the rich history, the fiesta not only provided some great rodeo for three days during the four different performances, but also hosted a Queen Contest, Petting Zoo, Exceptional Rodeo, BBQ, Pancake, 4-D barrel race and more. Each day, starting on July 12 and running through the 28, the town hosted an event, to highlight the western way of life and celebrated it in the “Wild West” fashion! Congratulations to all of the winners and all of the great folks in Durango who helped make this year’s event such a success.

T

he 2013 State Fair—the 75th such event held in its current location— will run consecutively beginning Wednesday, September 11th through Sunday. September 22nd, a repeat of last year’s condensed schedule. “This year, the New Mexico State Fair is proud to have partnered with UNM Ticketing, said State Fair General Manager Dan Mourning, “which means tickets can be purchased at all UNM ticketing locations, including local Albertson’s stores. And this year, regardless of when you purchase concert tickets, each one includes gate admission to the Fair. UNM is a leader in the local ticketing industry and, as a State Agency like the Fair, it just

made perfect sense that the two entities partner up to give patrons the best ticketing experience possible,” Mourning said. “We are excited to partner with EXPO New Mexico on the State Fair events at Tingley. It is an opportunity for two state entities to work together and enhance the experience of the State Fair patrons,” stated Mark Koson, Director of UNM Ticketing Services. “This is a win-win opportunity and we are proud to be working with the EXPO New Mexico team.” “As far as concert entertainment goes,” Mourning said, “we’re pulling out all the stops this year. There’s of course the PRCA Rodeo-Concert series, which once again

ow many times do you ask someone how old they are and they say, “I’m 29.” Well this time when you ask anyone associated with the Andy Devine Days Rodeo, they can actually say that and are telling the truth. This year is the 29th Annual Andy Devine Days in Kingman Arizona. Scheduled for September 25 through 29, 2013. The first rodeo performance will start Saturday after the parade and the final rodeo performance will be Sunday the 29th. The 2013 Andy Devine Days PRCA Rodeo is organized by the Kingsmen. The Kingsmen group is a non-profit organization, made up of dedicated local Kingman area businessmen who promote and foster the City of Kingman and its surrounding area. With the help of residents and the local business community, they sponsor special events that publicize and help preserve the city’s precious western heritage such as the Andy Devine Days Rodeo. “Every year we bring The Andy Devine Days Rodeo to historic Kingman, Arizona. The Kingsmen strive to bring you a better and better rodeo every year. The members and I listen to, and welcome, input from the community to make the rodeo an enjoyable event for

everyone!” Says Cody Swanty, President of the Kingsmen. “I know that we are a relatively small rodeo, but we pour our hearts into pulling the rodeo off. We want everyone to leave afterwards feeling like they had the best two days of their year.” In addition to the Andy Devine Days rodeo performances there will be plenty of other activity taking place in Kingman. On Wednesday the 25th will be the “Chili Feed” held at Martin Swanty Dodge; Thursday will be the “Cow Plop” at The Boot Barn. You don’t want to miss that event. Friday is the day for the 100 Club Dinner and Saturday morning starts off with the Andy Devine Days Parade and the rodeo to follow. Honeycutt Rodeo, Inc. is the rodeo’s stock contractor and has been for decades. The company is family owned and has produced the rodeo and provided the rodeo stock for all those years. “We do the entire two-day production,” said Jerry Honeycutt, the current company owner. This year Honeycutt Rodeo, Inc. plans on bringing over a hundred animals, bucking horses, bulls, timed event stock and saddle horses. “That’s about two truckloads of animals,” says Jerry, “We have some great livestock and they should provide for some great

features a hand-picked roster of some of country music’s most celebrated entertainers, plus PRCA rodeo action at bargain prices. But that’s far from all there is to do at Tingley this year,” he said. We’re starting off this year’s State Fair with three standalone concert events—Night Ranger & Loverboy, Zendaya with Fifth Harmony, and Dropfest featuring Cazzette, Manufactured Allstars and MakJ —that are sure set the tone in sellout fashion for the entire Fair,” he said. “Plus we’ve got Morgan Frazier performing two free shows on Opening Night that will kickstart the Fair with style.” “We set out when we got here in 2010 to give the State Fair back to the families of New Mexico, and to achieve two difficult but important goals: to increase attendance and return the Fair to financial solvency while improving the show we present every year,” Mourning said. “We’ve achieved those goals while also being cognizant of

competition for all the contestants again this year.” Honeycutt says the Andy Devine Days rodeo is a special rodeo for him and his family. They have been working with the Kingsmen for many years on this event and have a great relationship with the organization. “The Kingsmen are a good group of folks. You can count on when they say they will do something, they do it. They still believe in a handshake to seal the deal. It’s nice to work with people like that.” Says Honeycutt. “I look forward to the Kingman rodeo,” says Jerry Honeycutt, “It’s going to be a good time.” Andy Devine Days Schedule September 21, 2013 (All Day) Royalty Competition - Horsemanship / Speech / Interview September 25, 2013 (6:00 p.m.) Chili Feed September 26, 2013 (6:00 p.m.) Cow Plop September 27, 2013 (6:00 p.m.) 100 Club Celebration September 28, 2013 (10:00 a.m.) Andy Devine Days Parade September 28, 2013 (2:00 p.m.) 29th Annual Andy Devine Days Rodeo Performance September 29, 2013 (1:00 p.m.) 29th Annual Andy Devine Days Rodeo Performance

People are going to be quite pleasantly surprised,” Mourning concluded.

ALL-AROUND

The 20th Annual Wild Thing makes the History Books! ne of the wildest bull riding events in the Southwest closed its 20th year’s chapter in the history books. The Wild Thing Bull Riding hit Red Rock Park in Gallup, New Mexico with some of the toughest bulls and bull riders in the country. Bull riders were matched up with some of the best bulls you could ask for. “The bulls bucked unbelievable this year. In my opinion, these were some NFR quality bucking bulls.” Said producer Larry Peterson. “The bulls came from a warmer climate to the cooler weather and you could sure tell they enjoyed it by the way they bucked.” The two day event, held July 12 and 13 packed the stands at Red Rock State Park. Friday night’s performance had folks holding their umbrellas but never had to open them as the rain never impacted any of the performance. Saturday the rain had the opportunity to put a tamper on the event as it really came down between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., but by 6:30 when the event was schedule to start, producer Larry Peterson and crew with the help of loaders and a few truckloads of dirt had the arena ready to go. Other than a few wet backsides of their Cinch Jeans from sitting on the bleachers, the Saturday

night crowd was treated to some great bull riding. “If the rain would have lasted just a little longer it could have been a problem, but we were blessed and the bull riding and fireworks all went off without a hitch.” Said Peterson. This year the riders felt the effect of the bulls enjoying that cooler weather as a total of 4 qualified rides were scored

Like years pass though, every rider who made a qualified ride made a trip to the pay window. “The last ten years we have had this event, every rider that makes the buzzer has went home with a massive check.” Says Larry Peterson The bull riders were not the only winners in the arena this year. The “Frisbee Toss” went well, although no one won the pickup truck, two lucky spectators went home with 54 inch Flat Screen Toshiba Televisions. It was a great event all around and you can bet that Larry and crew are already planning for next year’s event.

Kenny Moore Memorial Open Rodeo

O

n August 2nd and 3rd friends of Kenny Moore gathered at the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Posse Arena to pay their respect to a dear friend, but also celebrate his life and compete in the open rodeo in his name. There were contestants entered all the way from the six and under events to the open events. It was a great day for a rodeo in Albuquerque and everyone had a great time. One of the highlights of the day was when Kenneth Moore, Kenny’s son won the average in the Mutton Bustin and received his Dale Chavez Trophy buckle for his effort. Kenny would be proud. A big thank you to all the family, friends and sponsors that worked so hard

to make this event possible. “Kenny was a dear friend and I know he would have been very grateful to everyone for making this happen.” Said Treyson Johnson. “It was great to see so many people come out and I am sure the family appreciated all the effort.” Rodeo Results Calf Roping - Cody Garcia Jr Steers - Rafe Winn Mutton Bustin - Kenneth Moore Novice Bulls - Brandon Mendoza Chute Doggin - KC Harris Broncs - Pat Garcia Open Barrels - Cheyann Garcia Novice Barrels - Indiana Madrid Open Bulls - Cody Harrison

2013 Navajo County Fair!

T

he Navajo County Fair, Inc. will be celebrating the 82nd Anniversary of the Navajo County Fair and Rodeo this year again in Holbrook, Arizona. The dates for this year fair and rodeo are September 11 – 15, 2013. The first Navajo County Fair was held in Taylor, Arizona in 1926. In 1931 the County Supervisors decided to move the county fair to Holbrook due to it being the county seat and its central location in the county. Since that time there has never been a year without a fair. There have been a few changes along the way. The Navajo County Fair and Fairgrounds are now supported by the Navajo County Board of Supervisors, maintained by the Navajo County Buildings & Grounds department and controlled by the Navajo County Fair, Inc. It is the 15-member board of directors of Navajo County Fair, Inc and a core of volunteers and sponsors who make the Navajo County Fair a success. Navajo County Fair, Inc. takes great pride in maintaining a traditional down home county fair and it is their hope that everyone in

Navajo County and the surrounding communities will come and enjoy the food, fun, entertainment, exhibits and carnival, along with new events. This year’s entertainment will include: The Rodeo, Demolition Derby, Little Buckaroo Rodeo, Ranch Rodeo, Mini Excavator and Skid Steer Competition, Lawn Mower Racing, Ranch Sorting, Jr. Livestock Show and Auction, Open Class Exhibits, 4-H Small Stock, 4-H Exhibits and 4-H Horse Achievement Show, Carnival, Jr. Miss Pageant, Antique Tractor Show and Pull, Mid-Way and Stage Entertainment, Kid’s Zone Area, Bands and Great Food. Back by popular demand, this year on September 14-15, 2013 Lawn Mower Racing with the American Racing Mower Association (ARMA) will take place at the fair. This year’s theme is “Western Nights under Midway Lights!” Don’t miss out on this one of a kind community event.

O

n August 4, 2013, the rodeo world lost one of its own, J.T. Chavez. J.T. was one of the original members of the New Mexico Rodeo Association in the inception years of the early 1980’s. He competed in the Bareback Riding event for almost 30 years; only stopping in 2009 after an injury finally put him on the sidelines. He served as an Event Director for the NMRA as well, volunteering his time and garnering many prizes and added money for the Bareback riders. Many a mile were traveled by J.T. and his closest buddies in a little red Porsche, cowboys and rigging bags stuffed in to the gills to make rodeo after rodeo. J.T. was a qualifier many times for the NMRA Finals rodeo, North American Rodeo Association and also competed in the Turquoise Circuit Pro Rodeo Association. J.T. served his country as a Navy Seal team member and as an Army National Guard member, recently performing a tour of duty in Iraq. He is survived by his son, Rylin Chavez and his daughter, Shyanne Chavez; his mother, Vicki Trujillo; his sister, five brothers and their wives and children; his two dogs, Crash and Dixie, and his horse, Canello. He was preceded in death by his brother, Louie.

Top Tie-down Roping Horse Dies of Salmonella Poisoning Story courtesy of Julie Mankin

O

ne of tie-down roping’s most talented equine stars, 20-year-old Little Bo Bo Hickory (“Boo”), has lost his long, valiant fight against laminitis. The gelding had foundered after contracting a severe case of salmonella poisoning in March 2011. Owner Karen Herbst of Whitesboro, Texas, who leases top roping horses to pro cowboys through Cinderella Horses, was followed by leagues of rodeo insiders as she spared no expense trying to save the horse so he could retire comfortably. But on August 11, with the damage inside Boo’s right hoof insurmountable, Herbst and her veterinarian, Josh Harvey of Decatur, Texas, made the joint decision to let the talented gelding pass on “to heavenly pastures.” Over four years following Herbst’s purchase of Boo from Zeke Griffith, the horse carried a large handful of elite ropers – including world champions PHOTO COURTESY OF DAN HUBBELL Tuf Cooper, Fred Whitfield, and Cody Ohl – to big paychecks at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo and many other big jackpots and rodeos. Herbst, who owns three-time PRCA/AQHA tie-down roping Horse of the Year Sweetness, also owns an 8-year-old half-brother to Boo named Haida’s Hickory Pet.

All the young cowboys and cowgirls were saddled up for the San Juan County Jr/Sr. Rodeo Association (SJCJSRA) Summer Series Finals. This weekend was the last weekend of three, two day events that started earlier this summer in June.

The SJCJSRA would like to thank all the contestants, families, friends, directors and sponsors for making this wonderful event possible. Without the help of so many, it would not be possible to allow these youth contestants’ opportunities such as this event to grow their talents and abilities.

he New Mexico Junior Rodeo Association (NMJRA) on August 3 and 4, 2013 held their “Open Junior Rodeo, Saddle and Buckle Shoot-Out” at the Grants Rodeo Grounds in Grants, New Mexico. This was a new format and an attempt by the association to help accommodate feedback they have received from members regarding travel expenses that come with some of the junior rodeo series that are spread out over numerous weekends and different locations. Having one big event over one weekend, allowed the association to target their resources and give more back to the kids. “I think the event was a huge success. We had a great turnout with over 100 contestants, which tells us we were on track with this new format idea,” said John English, Acting NMJRA President. “Next year’s board of directors will need to take a look and see if this is something they want to continue with. I was very pleased with the way it turned out.” The Grants Rodeo Association provided the facility and there were many sponsors from all across the state. “We could not have done it without the Grants Rodeo Association and all the many sponsors. I want to say a big thank you to all of them and all the parents and directors that pitched in to help also,” said English.

Cowboys Death On Roosevelt Lake Stuns Rodeo Community Article courtesy of www.paysonroundup.com

A

boating accident that killed a beloved cowboy on Roosevelt Lake this weekend has shocked the rodeo community. Wyatt Althoff, 26, was riding on a boat with eight friends Saturday afternoon when he fell overboard. It is unclear what led to the accident, according to the Gila County Sheriff’s Office. On Monday, divers Wyatt Althoff recovered Wyatt’s body. Althoff’s family described Wyatt as a kind, positive person that was practically born with a lasso in his hand. Wyatt roped up several local and national rodeo titles and competed in Friday’s Payson August Doins’, tying for second in the first round of tie-down roping. He was set to compete in team roping Sunday afternoon with Trevor ‘T.J.’ Brown, who was also on the boat Saturday. News of Wyatt’s death spread quickly over the weekend, hundreds of people commenting on Wyatt’s Facebook profile and that of his family and friends. “God must have needed a helluva cowboy up there because he got one of the best hands he could have ever possibly got,” posted one person on Wyatt’s Facebook page.

to the local economy annually. Allowing the surrounding area to become so downtrodden over the decades has resulted in an area of Albuquerque that is commonly referred to as the “war zone”…and the Expo sits right in the middle of it. Access from the Interstate and into the facility is terrible, and just about every roper I know (including me), has had their vehicle robbed while at the event. I wonder how much money the local economy has lost over the past ten years or so because of the neglect of the facility and the surrounding area. For sure the departure of the USTRC SW Regionals and the USTRC New Mexico Championships are two exampes of that. Certainly, due to a lack of vision, the City of Albuquerque has to accept a lot of the blame. And of course the USTRC has some responsibility. They, after all, are the ones who made the decision to move the event (and the NM Championships) from Albuquerque. I know for a fact, the Expo was one of the most expensive facilities in the country for the USTRC to rent… and nowhere near the best venue to produce such an event. I know they heard the continual complaints from ropers who hated to go the venue. I know that there is really no other venue in the Albuquerque area that could accommodate such an event. But still… there is one thing… the most important thing of all that,in my opinion, did not carry the weight it deserved in the decision-making process. Just do this. Pull out a road atlas of the United States. When you look at the southwestern part of the country… the part where a lot of ropers live… you notice right away the intersection of two of the most travelled interstate highways in the region. …that’s all I need to know. Addressing all the rest of the problems associated with having the event in Albuquerque are cancelled out. You just find a way to work around them… deal with them… and you have the event in Albuquerque… where it should be. If you think I’m wrong about this, just have a look at the results from this year’s event, and where the ropers are from. One thing you will notice… or should notice… is the lack of ropers from Arizona. I rest my case…

E R C O A R EP R NMNBHA 2013 State Finals

PHOTOS COURTESY OF POUNDING HOOVES PHOTOGRAPHY

The 2013 Finals are now in the books! What an interesting mix of rain, wind & sun Grants gave the participants! It was barrel racing at its peak, providing challenges to rider and horse alike in the adverse conditions of the arena. The ground crew of the Grants Rodeo Association worked super hard as always to provide the best ground possible for each race, which they did in fine fashion. And our entry secretary and scorekeeper worked hard to keep all the books and results in perfect order. A huge thank you to our sponsors, Perinatal Associates of NM, Old Mill Ranch Supply, Diabetes Network, and Leon & Francie LeBow! We could not have provided such great awards without their generous support. We would also like to thank Districts 1, 2 & 6 for their fundraiser donations. The members of NM NBHA are very grateful to these sponsors! Friday night was stormy but some fast times were turned in by Sheri Estrada, Keli Cox and Shannon Tidwell in the 1D; the 2D saw Bailey Harwell, Trudy Dean and

Vicki Duron dominate while the 3D had Marie Autrey, Brook Eaves and Dude Penrod pulling checks. The 4D pulled in Shyann Seng, Delaney Gonzales and Terry Daly for the Open All District Race. The Senior 1D was won by Sheri, 2D won by Trudy, Marie won the 3D and Terry won the 4D. The youth saw Delaney, Athena Omar and Cassidy Evans win checks. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race started with a breeze and some clouds which turned into a steady rain by the time we were through for the day! This time it was Bailey Harwell that dominated the field with Keli Cox and Shannon Tidwell in the 1D. The 2D was won by Francie Le Bow, with Ruth Bitsui and Lacie Cline close behind. The 3D was extremely close with Marion Ray edging out Cookie Pickens and Christie Atwell. The 4D saw Kendra Trujillo post the winning time, with Terry Daly & Mary Jo Pope rounding out the field. The annual pole bending jackpot was scheduled to run after the barrels, but the rain dictated otherwise and reset for Sunday. Sunday morning proved to be a fine New Mexico morning, with bright sunshine and clear blue skies. We began with Zoey Cline running a fine pattern in the PeeWee race on her great gray gelding~ what a pleasure to watch our future champions! The 1D was the fastest times of the weekend, again thanks to the ground crew that never gave

ALL-AROUND

up on keeping the dirt in running shape! Kelly Wade ran a 15.975 to win Sunday and post the fastest time over the 3 days of races, with Bailey Harwell and Payton McNiel rounding out the 1D winners. The 2D winners were Keli Cox, Hayley McNiel and Jorie Harwell. The 3D was a tight race with Shawnda Elkins placing first, Marion Ray in second and Shannon Tidwell placing 3rd. The 4D was decided by Cindy Haga, with Sharon George and Bobbie Clawson following her time. The pole bending is always fun to watch, we saw Cathy Gray win the jackpot with a super run.

The average winners in the Open received a saddle certificate from Corriente Saddles, and a Wildcard for the World Championships in Perry, GA. Winners in each D also received custom buckles and pendants from A Cut Above Silver. As State Director, I would personally like to congratulate all the contestants, and winners at the NM NBHA State Finals. Everyone in attendance rode like champions, and it was my pleasure to produce this great event for the members. It is also my final race as State Director. This will be my final year, as my young horse, my granddaughter and other life pursuits are calling me their way. Of course I will see you all down the road, chasing the cans never leaves your blood!

THE

SEPTEMBER 2013

ALL-AROUND

by Lee Pitts

Desperate.com

I

laugh when I hear people say how revolutionary all this computer malarkey is, like email, eHarmony and e everything. As far as Internet matchmaking goes, let me tell you, people were just as desperate for affection back in my day. Or at least I was. Picking a mate without meeting he or she is nothing new, what do you think the lonely old miners, ranchers, mountain men and sheepherders in the early West did when they married whatever got off the stagecoach, or the train? It’s just one more example of how, if you wait long enough, everything that is old will come around again. I’m just waiting for it to be my turn. Many of the women who wanted to come west were “picture brides” because the men, who outnumbered the women sometimes by as much as 60 to one, picked their lifelong mate as if they were ordering from a Sears Roebuck catalog. They were also called “mail-order brides,” only in many cases they were “mail-order lies” as the product that arrived by boat after sailing around the horn was often not as advertised. But what were the lonesome men supposed to do, send the women back? This wasn’t catch and release fishing we’re talking about here. It was also common for foreigners who came to this country to marry women who were picked out for them back in the old country. And there were probably just as many lies told in the Gold Rush days as there are now on the Internet. There had to be, why else would a nice woman leave the cozy confines of the East to live in a dugout with a dirty old man, cook, clean, propagate and fight off Indians and

wild animals in her spare time? This subject arose because a friend of ours is “back on the market” after being married for 25 long years. Slick said that his wife was “monogamously challenged” but I can’t say as I blame her because Slick is as exciting as gray wallpaper. He’s also very lonely and he’s going broke paying $3.95 per minute to talk on the phone to some gal in Thailand who speaks terrible English. Slick is one of those men who just can’t seem to live without a woman in his life. He is also like those miners and ranchers of yesteryear in that he takes a bath once a week, has no social skills, lives in poverty and is desperate for a mate because he is tired of doing his own dishes. The problem is the odds have evened up and there is one woman for every man in the West now. Except for Slick, that is. Slick got so tired of cleaning his own bathroom and was so desperate for love that he went on a matchmaking website to prospect for a wife. After paying up, Slick was asked to complete an in-depth confidential personal survey. But just like the liars of old, he “aggressively stretched the truth,” you might say. Instead of saying he’s 5'8", he said he was 6'2" and instead of saying he was bald, fat and ugly, he said he loved to cook, was a 185 pound bundle of muscle and had all of his own hair. He also said that he was sensitive, caring, liked jewelry, made in excess of $150,000 a year and had several homes, despite the fact that he’s a day-working cowboy who lives in a 1965 model trailer house. And it’s not even a double wide! When I asked him why he lied Slick said, “What woman in her right mind would go out with me if I told
