Lots of Horseplay Over the Weekend at the Squaw Valley Riding Club

The hottest day of the year didn’t slow down any of the cow-folk that showed up at the Squaw Valley Riding Club (aka Horsemen’s) to compete for buckles, saddles, cash prizes, and points in their annual roping competition over the weekend. 

Friday night was a kids’ competition which included barrel racing. On Saturday, there were 50 teams competing in the first round and 90 teams in the second round of roping steers. Competitors came from as far as Oregon and Nevada. 

The horse club held a dance with live music by Front Porch from Carson Valley and a barbecue on Saturday night. 

Sponsors included Hitchcock Construction, Lighthouse Chipping, Turner Construction, McCloud Mill Works, Big Valley Sanitation, Outlaw Saddles & Silver, Dan and Julie Wheeler, and Larry Godard. Buckle sponsors were Matt Willson, Outlaw Saddle, Caleb Martin, John Ingram, Caroline Stone, Dawson Clark, Heather McRae, Billie and Gary Lewis, Randy Ives, Peter and Diane Tolosano, Steve and Frankie Clark, the Glynn Family, and Larry Godard.
