American Heartlands & Dusty Reins Stories
Crazy Horse Monument

The United States Team Penning Association was having its World Finals competition in the Amarillo National Center Arena and on the Tri-State Fairgrounds in Amarillo, Texas when I began documenting western culture in the American Heartlands. Here are a few video examples of some of the competition and you can find the rest on the same channel.


I began by documenting a qualifying USTPA regional event in the ANC Arena.


The 2020 World Finals were shut down by the Covid pandemic so I was able to document some highlights during the 2021 competition.

The week-long USTPA World Finals 2021 also included some entertainment with a Bull Bash Show with J.B. Mauney.

There are youth classes in USTPA competition too.

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!
