Yeehaw

An Ennis Rodeo champion

One of the seven riders representing Madison County in the Ennis Rodeo placed first.

Cooper Clemens, a part-time local of Cameron, took first place in the bareback riding competition. He scored 76 points, a single point higher than J2 Bridges of Dillon, July 3.

“I knew I had a good horse,” Clemens said. “You have to capitalize on getting a good horse.”

Clemens is from Blackfoot, Idaho. He comes to Cameron during the summer and fall to help on his friends’ farm. The 25-year-old has been rodeoing for as long as he can remember. He competed in the Ennis Rodeo once before and placed in the top five. But this was the first year he took the top score, earning him nearly $900. “It’s a fun rodeo,” Clemens said.

“The small-town atmosphere makes for a good audience.”
