By Susan Kanode for the Caldwell Night Rodeo
CALDWELL, Idaho (Aug. 17, 2021)—The first performance of the Caldwell Night Rodeo saw a match up that saddle bronc riding dreams are made of.
Allen Boore, a two-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) qualifier from Axtell, Utah was excited to get on Powder River Rodeo’s bucking horse After Party. He knew the horse, it was at a rodeo that has always been among his favorites and at 21st in the world standings, he needs every dollar he can get to qualify for rodeo’s championships. A stellar effort by both the athletes saw the judges adding up their scores for a total of 86 points. Boore then became the lucky saddle bronc rider to make the victory lap in front of the rowdies and civies.
“I’ve always loved this rodeo and I’ve made the short round before, but it’s still on my bucket list to win,” Boore said. “Making that victory lap is always fun. The crowd and the atmosphere here are electric. You can feel the excitement.”
The saddle bronc riding and bareback riding feature one full round of competition that will be completed on Friday night. At that time, the 12 competitors with the highest scores will make their way back to the D&B Supply Arena to compete for a Caldwell Night Rodeo Championship on Saturday night.
The bull riding champion will be based on the high score through all five performances here. One rider was successful Tuesday night. Jate Frost, the younger brother of NFR bull riders Joe and Josh Frost had a 79-point effort on Powder River Rodeo’s bull named Kingdom. That probably won’t get him a championship here, but based on previous history, it could certainly get him to the pay window.
The second performance of the rodeo will start at 8 p.m. Wednesday night. Regular rodeo competition continues through Friday, Aug. 20. All of the contestants are hoping to be here on Saturday, Aug. 21 when championships will be awarded.
