Gone are the days of the wild
and wooley wild horses that used
to come right off the range of
Warm Springs to give the spectators
the wild action of stock never have
been in captivity before, which made
the All-Indian rodeo what it is
Never the less the competition
was lough as usual at this years
Tywama All-Indian Rodeo which
was held in Tygh Valley, Oregon
on May 1 7th and 1 8th.
Jerry Sam of Omak, Washington,
was named the Ail-Around champion
this year and he was presented with
a trophy saddle. The cowboy to
win the all-around title had to
place in both a timed and rough
stock event. There were very few
who were really in contention for
the all-around title.
There were 256 entries in all the
events that took place from all
parts of the Northwest. I'm sure
that cowboys out numbered the
cops just a little bit. . .not very

riding Shane Olney and Gary Sam

Flett both scored 67 for a split for

their fine horses. Winning the event

on two head had a total time of
10.73 for first. Cort Herrera 12.20.
John Hammack 20.97 for third.
The wild cow milking usually
provides entertainment for the spec
tators of course is a tough event
especially for the mugger who has
to contain the cow while the roper
milks the cow and run across the
arena to the time flagman. The
bottle must have milk or otherwise
there is no time. The rope must be
completely off the cow as the roper
crosses the line. George Adams, Jr.
of White Swan roped and milked a
cow in 18.20 to take first place,
Jerry Sam second with a time of
43.50, Roger Fiander 44.64 third

and Mel Joseph 8.54 for third,
Dennis Dahl and Garret Spoonhun
ter 8.77 for fourth and Thumper
Miller and Sandy Miller rope one

Well thev sav. "It's the wildest
event of the show, w here men face
beast." The wildhorse race. Like
any other year there were plenty of
bumps and bruises and cowboys
laying in the paths of these wild
horses. The first day the team of
Jason Smith won theevent with his
father Buck Smith's team came in
second and Charley Scott third.
The second day Jason Smith again
won the event. Wayne BullCalf
second and Charley Scott third.
Incidentally the Jason Smith was
the world champion wildhorse race
team last year.
The tough competition between
man and beast and man against
man came to a close for another
year at Tygh Valley, with some
very pleasant memories of all contes
tants who will remember their spot
in the show.
The next WSIRA rodeo will be
held in Klamath Falls. May 24 and
25, where all the cowboys will be
participating in their special events
trying to build their points for the
national finals next fall.
