A charge of wild horses







The Lone Star Pro Rodeo last year began with the stampede of wild horses captured in this dramatic photo taken by professional photographer Duncan McKinnon. Later the same horses starred in the bronc-riding event. This year the opening event features a Native American theme and progresses through bronc riding, calf-roping, steer-wrestling, bull-riding, chuckwagon-racing and cowgirls’ events including breakaway roping and barrel-racing. And there’s the chicken chasin’ contest for kids. The 30th annual Agribusiness Center Pro Rodeo takes place Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. start. Tickets $15 at the door, for adults, $10 for children 4-12. The city fathers proclaimed March 28 – April 2 Rodeo Week in honor of the two nights of non-stop excitement for the whole family. – Ron Gholson
