Rodeo series …

The 2017 Meeker Summer Rodeo Series has given amateur cowgirls like Shelby Tanner Kyle and Meeker High School graduate Sheridan Harvey an opportunity to try something new and the opportunities are appreciated. “I just started riding rough stock because I only have this one life to live and if I don’t take risks, what’s the point of having this life?” said Kyle, who has been riding saddle broncs during the series and for the first time last Thursday attempted to ride a bull. The Meeker Summer Rodeo Series continues at 7 p.m., at the Rio Blanco County Fairgrounds. Bobby Gutierrez photos
