postheadericon Veteran cowboys putting bronc, bareback riding clinic

Contestants interested in riding bucking horses – or riding them better – will have a chance to hone their skills during a bareback riding and saddle bronc riding school planned for Friday, Nov. 11-Sunday, Nov. 13, in Ponca City, Okla.

The brainchild of all-around rodeo hand Justin Rumford, the clinic will be instructed by saddle bronc riders Bobby Griswold and Jesse James Kirby and bareback riding world champion Mark Gomes and will take place at the 101 Wild West Rodeo grounds and inside a classroom location in Ponca City.

Gomes is an eight-time qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo; Griswold has qualified for the NFR four times in his career and is a two-time circuit champion; and Kirby is a two-time qualifier to the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo. They bring years of experience to the classroom and to the traditional training ground, the rodeo arena.

The cost for the school is $300 for a full student, $100 for a ground student. Deposits ($150 for full; $50 for ground) are due by Oct. 22 to reserve a spot. There will be limited spaces available, which will ensure the best student-instructor ratio. Contact Justin Rumford at (580) 716-3239 or at jrumford@hotmail.com for information or to reserve a spot in the class.

The school will feature unlimited livestock, video playback and breakout classroom sessions with instruction. The educational opportunity is for everyone – from beginners to card-holders – who hope to improve their game. There will be livestock available to accommodate beginners and experts.
