To honor a great cowboy with no harm to horses

Letters to the Editor


I would like to invite the public to join the Ridge Riders this Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Ridge Rider arena for the Cleatis Lacy Memorial Bull Riding and Wild Horse Races.

The Ridge Riders set up this event to honor our good friend and one of the greatest cowboys in the Pacific Northwest. For those of you who did not know Cleatis, he lived and raised his family right here in Grand Coulee and traveled extensively year long following the rodeo circuit. We hope with this event his memory will live on.

We added a new attraction this year, the Wild Horse Races. If you have never seen a Wild Horse Race, this is an event you’ll definitely want to see. This event brings back the memories of how cowboys use to catch and train wild horses in the old days. To clear any confusion, these horses are raised on a family ranch by one of the most experienced horsemen in our area. They are handled and vaccinated and bred for multiple purposes.

There is no harm done to these fine animals. Halter and lead ropes are used, not bits. So come watch the cowboys show us how it is done.

Please join us this Saturday for the celebration of the life and memories of Cleatis Lacy.

See you at the arena.

Cindy Edwards
