Rodeo blog links

Updated Monday, Sept. 18

If you interested in more rodeo stuff, I found a blog related to rodeo you may be interested in checking out. It's called Steve Kenyon - Rodeo Profiles.

This appears to be a new site, but I wanted to share it because it mentions Joe Beavers' win at Pendleton. But the other reason I wanted to include it is because it mentions a barrel racing event in another post that was held today. It called it the Buttercreek Classic. The arena mentioned here is just down the road from where I was staying. I didn't venture down to the arena before heading back toward Salem today, but we could hear some of the announcing over the PC system clear at my parents' business. And there was a sea of horse trailers down there.

I swear there were more trailers there than there were at the Round-Up.

As someone who grew up on Buttercreek, it's quite the thrill to know that this little country arena literally in the midst of farm fields, it is making a mark as a rodeo venue. And it's appropriate that it be a venue for barrel racers, as there have been several talented barrel racers from that little town of Echo, Ore., and surrounding areas over the years.

Here's a link to some other rodeo blogs by current and past PRCA cowboys, courtesy of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and's rodeo site.

I also found a link to a weekly blog from long-time Round-Up barrelman and rodeo clown/entertainer Flint Rasmussen. Rasmussen was the in-arena entertainer for eight consecutive years until this year, but did work the PBR event in Pendleton. He has a nice post about his appreciation for Pendleton fans and PRCA rodeo fans in particular now that he is working only PBR events.

You were missed in the big arena Flint, but your fans and friends understand and support your decision to put your family first (and realize getting a nice paycheck to do that doesn't hurt either). You can read the story I wrote about Rasmussen's final year at the Pendleton Round-Up here at this link.
