The annual series has attracted riders from all over the reservation and last Saturday's event was no different as 66 wooly riders took part in the riding competition.
The series is open to anyone 7 and under who is willing to take the plunge on a 100-pound-plus sheep. For those ages 8 to 12, they can take part in the steer-riding portion of the series.
"We've been fairly consistent," coordinator Scott Clawson said. "It always fluctuates a little bit from year to year but it's been pretty good. I can't complain."
With two events completed the series is halfway done with the next two events being held on May 10 and 17 at the T&R Feed Store along U.S. Highway 491.
