Los Cuatro Amigos team wins ranch rodeo title
The heeler prepares to throw his lasso in anticipation of a clean, fast run.
The Heritage Days Ranch Rodeo was the first event held under the covered facility at Cowboy Fellowship May 11. Nine teams from all over the state of Texas competed throughout the evening in exciting team events, including wild cow milking, cattle sorting, team branding, team roping, and more.
The team of Los Cuatro (Four) Amigos, consisting of Richard Arredondo, Oscar Garza, Ethan Garza, and Chris Garza, won the ranch rodeo.
Second place went to Paloma Cattle Co. -- Gilbert R. Gonzales, Rowdy Yow, Colby Mangum, and Derek Hale. The W2 Ranch team of Robert Fluitt, Cory Timberlake, and Wayne Wise roped in third place.
Ranch rodeos serve as a living tribute to our Western heritage as it promotes Texas history and the Western lifestyle by featuring competition between real working cowboys from real working Texas ranches. The cowboys and their horses compete in team events that showcase necessary skills cowboys practice every day on a Texas ranch. The events require teamwork and quick decision-making to earn the top prizes at each event.
Special thanks go to the ranch rodeo team leader, Dan Osterman, and his crew of volunteers and workers who worked tirelessly and made sure the rodeo was enjoyed by all who attended.
