Yee Haa!! Giddy up bronco!-
All you wanna-be cowpokes, eat yor hearts out!!
Here is a quote about the rodeo from the Boundary County Digest, a local paper: Ken (Pres. of the Selkirk Saddle Club) explained that the Kootenai River Rodeo is a Pro-West sanctioned rodeo. Most of the contestants are Pro-West, but any resident who wants to complete can enter as a “local cowboy” if he/she lives within 75 miles of Bonners Ferry… Welllllll, guess who entered the team roping contest with me??!! Okay, she got disqualified due to the 75 mile rule, but what fun we had!! Doesn't she cut a pretty figure on that horse??
