Champion attitude

World champion bull rider Shane Proctor, left, poses with Austin Gordon, 12, of Ellensburg, to whom Proctor awarded the the Stony Covington belt buckle, the top honor at Proctor’s annual bull riding clinic, which finished up its third year April 4. Gordon, a rodeo competitor for seven years, won after riding 11 head of stock in the two-day clinic. Next year, those will include bulls, said his dad. Proctor noted Gordon was the first non-bull rider to get the Covington buckle. “You just kept getting back on,” he told Gordon. — Scott Hunter photo
