We held our CSSHA Fall/Winter Stockmanship 101 Practice and Waddie Drive Jackpot on October 29 & 30 at Central Wyoming College Equine Facility in Riverton, WY. We had great participation, met some
new riders, and had fun seeing familiar faces.

First, congratulations to the winners of the Waddie Drive Jackpot held Sunday afternoon at CWC in Riverton! The winning adult, Gayle Barnett, had a time just over 1 minute to run her cow around 2 barrels
and between poles in a specific pattern.

Adult placing:
1st Gayle Barnett, 2nd Kyle Clements, 3rd Jim Horn, 4th Marty Kennison
Youth Winners:
1st Sam Wahl, 2nd Ryker Edgington

Thanks to Rod and Pam Rivers who developed our fall/winter schedule for the club’s Central Wyoming College weekend practices and jackpots in Riverton, WY. As always, thanks to everyone who helped at the practice with cattle, gates, signups, jackpot timing, tracking scores, cleaning up after horses, and all the work that it takes to pull off these events. Special thanks to Laurie and Brett Gardner for use of their cattle, and to CWC Equine program, students and staff for supporting CSSHA to use their arena this winter.
