American Heartlands & Dusty Reins Stories
Crazy Horse Monument

Cal Farley established Boys Ranch in 1939 on the old townsite of Tascosa, Texas, the first town established in the Texas Panhandle. Boys Ranch today provides a home and education for at-risk boys and girls ages 5 - 18 on a working ranch of 12,000 acres of land.

The ranch celebrates its western heritage with an annual rodeo on Memorial Day weekend which I have documented with still photography in past years but had the privilege to document with video in 2023. The full rodeo can be seen on Dusty Reins Stories if you are a channel Fan Club member. Individual events can be watched below.

All the rodeo events from 2023 are listed below in chronological order.

You may see several events on the same day. I can only pick one to go next depending on where I was located during the prior event I attended. Fuel is expensive these days!
