Transcript Out of the saddle for a brief pit stop, riders rest up for the trail ride, left. Trying to beat the clock, the pursuer closes in on the pursued, below. Look's like this fellow's mount knows only one gear . . . reverse, below. Greasy Pigs, Suited Calves, Buckin' Broncs The Rodeo Association's annual spring rodeo got off to a wild and wooly start as students saddled up for the kickoff trail ride from Arcadia to Houston. Students either shuffled to the beat of a western band or stuffed themselves with barbecued elk and beer at the trail riders' send-off party. If cowboys (and girls) were not stomping after steers, they were romping with greased pigs during the two day rodeo. Aside from traditional events such as bare back bronc riding, steer dog ging and calf roping, this year's rodeo included three organizational events— pig sacking, calf dressing and steer saddling. Calf dressing was opened to women's organizations only and required each contestant to put a pair of pants on a not-so-willing calf and take him across the finish line. Entries in the Queen's contest had to compete in the barrel racing event. Dianne Knight was selected Rodeo Queen on the basis of her horsemanship, personality and costume. The rodeo crowd watches skilled riders maneuver their mounts in various events, right. Rodeo Queen Dianne Knight paces her horse for the judges, far right. Top Rip Roarin' Rodeo 80 81
