Kittens freeing the horses for the third time!
It was minus 30ºC and I was capturing a friend who was riding inside a warm local arena. I noticed that as riders and steeds came in the door they brought with them a flurry of frozen foggy air!
This year’s Pack Horse Race winners received belt buckles from the descendants of Jack and Gladys Browning who put on the first Bighorn Stampede in 1933
Bighorn Stampede pack horse race attracted 4 teams who pack their boxes, tie the diamond hitch, race around the track and unpack their gear while judges scrutinize.
The horses are very curious about this tiny Sandhill Crane chick running around with a parent trying to keep track of it among the mares and their foals.
