A mother of four from a town of 80 people in South Dakota set a new barrel racing arena record Wednesday at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Summer Kosel and her horse Apollo finished the big arena pattern in 17.02 seconds to win the qualifying round that trimmed the field from more than 190 barrel racers to 72. Kosel has never been to ‘The Daddy’ and came this year at the urging of a friend. She beat the previous Frontier Park time by one one-hundredth of a second.
Those in the know say Sunday at Cheyenne Frontier Days was as good a display of team roping skill as you’d ever encounter. A total of 72 teams advanced out of the qualifying rounds to performances that begin next weekend and did so with runs ranging from seven to twelve seconds. A number of former Central Rocky Mountain Region college stars were among those to move on for a chance at a coveted buckle from ‘The Daddy.’ If you aren’t aware of strategy in team roping stick around for the last run here by Hershey, Nebraska’s Cooper and Tucker White. Cooper was an all-around cowboy for Gillette College.
The 41st Annual Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Invitational Western Art Show & Sale will take place from Thursday, July 21 to August 14. The Western Art Show features the nation’s top Western artists who bring to life the celebration, the heritage, and the outlook of the American West.
The Opening Reception begins at 3:30 p.m. on July 21 with the ticket holder preview. At 4:30 p.m., guests will hop on a bus for hors d’oeuvres on the lawn of the Governor’s Residence. The exhibit and Jump-the-Gun will open at 6:00pm at the Museum. With Jump-the-Gun, patrons can immediately purchase artwork at a premium price. To round out the night, we will have our sales drawing at 7 p.m. and a western dinner with live music.
