Men Become Boys Again.

What do you get when you combine a 2 time World Champion team roper, a great host family, delicious BBQ, Monsoon rains, and a handful of aspiring team ropers? You get a bunch of grown men acting like kids on Christmas morning. Each and every one of their faces light up when then man from Stephenville Texas, Walt Woodard speaks to them. Walt has a great sense of humour that really helps to lower the guard of these cowboys so he can “Teach young dogs some old tricks.”

I got the pleasure of spending 2 days with these hard-working cowboys, and cowgirls as they made their journey back to school. Imagine if all schooling was done on a horse in an arena, we’d have a province full of scholars. They gave their undivided attention and truly listened to what he was telling them, wish I could get my kids to learn like that!
Slade and Cami Bowers were amazing hosts; putting out big spreads at meal time, shelter from the torrential rains, and being so well-organized. There wasn’t any wasted time and everything seemed to run smooth, thanks again guys.

There were ropers of all ages, skill level and gender out participating in this two-day school. It was great to see them all laughing and learning together.

If you are looking to buy prints or digital images from the school or the Jackpot please follow the link on the side. If they aren’t up yet please be patient  . Rodeo weekends tend to turn into rodeo weeks. I’ve been away for a while but hope to get these up soon for you to browse through.
