Powell’s Kanin Asay is having a lot of fun riding bulls early in the 2012 pro rodeo year. He’s already knocking at the door of $50K in winnings and is firmly seated near the top of the world standings. He added $3,700 to his total by topping D&H Cattle’s spinner called Wild Child for 89 points and a share of the title at the Western Frontier Pro Rodeo in Pocatello, ID last weekend:
The Western Frontier is the brainchild of Power River Rodeo Co. based in Riverton. Owners Hank and Lori Franzen along with their kids put on the show. It replaced the vacancy left by the PRCA moving its National Circuit Finals Rodeo to Oklahoma City.
Send in the Clowns
The Sheridan WYO Rodeo will abound with clowns this summer while hosting the Rodeo Clown Reunion, July 11-14. Organizer Gail Woerner says retired clowns, bullfighters and barrelmen from fifteen states are planning to attend with hopes of stirring up smiles for rodeo crowds and at other venues in Sheridan. Woerner says the reunion is a way to honor former rodeo performers and show appreciation for their many years in the arena.
Rodeo week in Sheridan kicks off with the 6th annual Chris LeDoux Spurs and Spikes Memorial Golf Tournament held July 6th and 7th at The Powder Horn Golf Club. The two-day event includes a practice round, barbecue and auction, in addition to the four-person scramble golf tournament.
