Over 20 years ago I did two colt starting demonstrations a day at Las Vegas Event Center Cowboy Christmas during the WNFR for Purina for several years.
It was great fun to start colts in downtown Las Vegas in front of the rodeo crowd. We met so many people and David Nelson and Darrell Burnett really treated us great and the time there created lots of good memories for our family. We even got to ride on the Binion stagecoach one night at the rodeo.
A funny thing happened one day. I had finished a demo and was visiting with some old cowboys and Mesa was riding our saddle horse “Zorro” and he farted her off in the round pen. She was all upset about it and I told he she was probably the only one to ever get bucked off in downtown Las Vegas for along time.
Fast forward 20 years or so and Mesa had become very involved in the bucking bull world. She was helping shag bulls out of the arena at an ABBI event and got rimfired and her horse bucked her off in front of the whole crowd and all the folks on the live stream. She took it even worse than the first time!
Well we are headed back to Vegas. Mesa is producing a woman’s ranch rodeo championship for The Art of the Cowgirl on December 6th at 1:00 pm and Mesa and I are doing Ranch work demos at 10:00 am each day at Rodeo World Las Vegas at Resorts World. It will all be on Facebook livestream on several places.
Come and see if Mesa gets bucked off or stays on! It’s going to be fun and we will throw lots of ideas out there for you to think about.
