September 10,  2007

 

Oklahoma rancher, poet, and reciter Jay Snider shared photos of  three generations of rodeoing Sniders, and four generations horseback. Jay told us about the photos:

The one with Dad by himself is when he won the Pioneer Breakaway Roping at the Texas Cowboy Reunion at Stamford, Texas in 1995. The other is of Mom and Dad with 7 of the 9 saddles he won through the years in the Senior Pro Rodeo Association and the National Old Time Ropers Association. His rodeo career began in the early 1940s and continued to rope steers up until the last couple of years. I'm sure he still can but prefers to coach his sons and grandsons from the chutes. That's a blessing in itself. I have never known a better horseman than he.


 

 

Any old "ringy" bull rider will tell you that he never forgets a bull or  the ride he made on him. The picture below was taken at Lawton, Oklahoma in about 1979 or 1980. The bull belonged to F&F Rodeo Company and was simply called #33. [That's Jay Snider]:
 

Our son Jason is in the white shirt and our son Rusty is wearing the red shirt. Both pictures were taken at the 2006 Rafter S Ranch Cowboy Reunion [see more photos from that event here]. Jason lives in Prineville, Oregon and Rusty at Cement, Oklahoma. Both are good horsemen.


The next generation is below:  Shy Ann, daughter of Rusty and Leslie Snider, with grandfather Jay:

In April, 2008 Jay sent this photo of Shy Ann, at the August, 2007 Cyril, Oklahoma annual rodeo:

 

Jay told us,  "The bull belongs to Jamie Dees of the Rafter D Rodeo Company of Sterling, Oklahoma. Jamie trained the bull himself from a calf and takes him to events for the kids to ride and take pictures on. The kids get a kick out of it but it tends to put Nana's and Papa's into a tailspin. At Shy Ann's age, kids have no fear. Now I know how my Mother felt all those years that I rode bulls, which gives folks a little indication of the mentality that you're dealing with as I write this."

And Ruby Jean, daughter of Jason and Kara, with her father:
