Rodeo de Santa Fe Opening Ceremony & Parade

For the 2nd year in a row we were honored to ride as a group for the opening ceremonies for the Rodeo de Santa Fe where they dedicated the night to our combat warriors. The crowd was wowed and gave us a standing ovation when they announced our group including Cowboy Up! instructor and film actor Wes Studi. Riding "Moon" one of our donated program horses, Wes was a crowd favorite waving his hat in the air and riding at the lead of the wagon and outriders.

A very special thanks to Harry Toulimas and his Rio Grand Carriage Works Team of Belgian Drafts that carried our precious cargo.

Thank you to Kyle Mascarenas for taking the following three pictures.
