It was nothing but horses and hats and saddles and spurs at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds Wednesday night as contestants of all ages competed in the Sheridan Cowgirls Rodeo. Geared for the family, even a smattering of rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of everyone there.
Merlin Zowada has two girls involved in rodeo, the oldest one being on the Sheridan High School rodeo team. He said this rodeo is good training for his girls.
Events included Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Goat Tying, Dummy Roping, Breakaway Roping, Steer Stopping, Girls Team Roping, and Mixed Roping. The event though competitive, yet overflowed with camaraderie. Everybody was helping everyone. Liz Reynolds was helping secretary that night.
There are eight weekly Sheridan Cowgirls Rodeos held throughout the summer.
