The TWR Opener

The True Western Roundup is back in action for the 10th summer here in Durango, Co. I am so excited to be the official photographer for my fourth season. It has been such a fun experience working with this great crew, amazing contestants and this year has been no different.

This Wednesday night was a little extra special as it was a CPRA sanctioned event! We had contestants from all over Colorado, Arizona & Wyoming show up to compete. The stock was provided by W/A Rodeo from Bloomfield, New Mexico and as always they preformed great.

There were 164 entires and a $15,463 payout.
