WINCHESTER, ID - When it gets this hot out, athletes everywhere appreciate any shade they can find during their sporting events.

And this little rider to be, along with hundreds of other riders, came out to the beautiful arena in the pines for the 20th Annual Winchester Rodeo. The two-day event featured 16 different events with participants of all ages, and was not only somewhat a practice round for the upcoming Lewiston Roundup, but also a qualifier in some cases.

Looking at just a few of our local winners, congrats to Adam Waite who won the bareback bronc riding, Lindsey Parkins for winning the open breakaway, Gary Alger and Kade Wooten for tying in the saddle bronc riding, Tyson Burman on a big calf roping win and so many others. Riders seem to love this rodeo!

"It's world famous, I mean it's one of a kind," said Asotin rider Zane Ford. "I don't think there's anywhere else in the world that would do something like this."

"I like the timber and it's just a good, small local rodeo," said Lewiston rider Cody Braucher.

We've got plenty of other rodeos coming up still, so stay tuned over the next few weeks.
