Dusty Reins Stories

Clarendon, Texas is located in the Southeastern portion of the Texas Panhandle established on a small portion of the JA Ranch managed by Charles Goodnight. The community was started by a group of fundamentalist Methodists who wanted to separate themselves from unrighteous societies. The community quickly became known as "Saints' Roost".

Clarendon recently held its 145th Saints' Roost Independence Day Celebration 2022 with community events in and near the Donley County Courthouse Square and three evenings of ranch rodeo action hosted by the Clarendon Outdoor Entertainment Association.

The samples below are from documenting the events here for several years.

Dusty Reins Schedule

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!
