Later in the evening, they moved on to open breakaway short-go-round roping.
The proceeds from the event go toward West Texas A&M University’s rodeo team.
“It’s really awesome getting to go to school here and getting to help out with something like this because it does mean a lot to a lot of people the meaning behind all of it and getting to raise the money for our rodeo,” Shelby Espenson, a volunteer stated.
