AIKEN – An International Pro Rodeo Association sanctioned rodeo stopped at the Western Carolina State Fairgrounds June 23-24. It includes eight standard events that counted toward World Championship titles.
The top cowboys and cowgirls in the region competed in bareback riding, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, tie down roping, cowgirls breakaway roping, team roping, cowgirls barrel racing and bull riding.
Among the competitors was Harold Miller, who at 66, is still trying to hold on for eight seconds.
The event is a qualifier for the International Finals Rodeo held in Guthrie, Okla., in January 2024 and will feature this year’s World Champion Saddle Bronc, “Desperado.”
