Bull ride winners announced

 

Top – A young would-be pony rider hangs on with tenacity as a pony drags him across the entire length of the arena at the Ridge Riders Rodeo Grounds Friday.

The three top winners in the Fifth Annual Cleatis Lacy Memorial Bull Riding event last Friday picked up nearly $3,200 in prize money.

The Friday night event at the Ridge Rider Rodeo Grounds was a memorial to the Grand Coulee cowboy whose friendliness and rodeo fame touched a lot of people during his 86 years.

The Ridge Riders had added $2,500 to the prize money for the event.

Placing first was Ryan Prophet, of Rigby, Idaho, who picked up $1,596.76, in prize money.

Second was Wyatt Wilks, of Dixie, Idaho, who got a check for $834.67.

An Omak cowboy, Francis Marchand, won third place and took home $762.09 in the bull riding event.

In addition to the bull riding and a wild horse race, the event added contests involving grown cowboys, and also children, working with small, untamed ponies.
