Part II of III

In spite of the rough-and-tumble early existence of mining and the railroad, Gallup has mostly always been an artful community.  It took a few years, of course, to replace the male-dominated life with the gentler wants and needs of the distaff side who seemed to appear from everywhere and succeeded, as...

Tibbs Bob Pino: A recovered life

The toughest ride for this champion bull rider did not have four legs and horns, but involved moving on from alcohol.

Tibbs Bob Pino grew up on a small family ranch south of the Zuni Mountains by Pinehill, New Mexico.  It was a pleasant place to grow up: “the ranch had cows, horses, sheep, everything,” he said.  His father was a champion calf roper and “taught me to ride bulls and to rope” he added.  He himself later began to win rodeos as a bull rider.  However, perhaps his biggest achievement involved his eventually successful fight with alcohol.

Pino went to Pinehill High School and while there joined the rodeo club. He started on the junior rodeo level.

Glory Days Restored: Ceremonial Rodeo Features Fun for Everyone

E-mail Print PDF
Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial would not be complete without the historical rodeo that accompanies the Native dancing and artistry. Event coordinator Dudley Byerley has organized a rip-roaring event that is sure to entertain the masses.

The rodeo was nearly cancelled last year. Byerley said he received a call from McKinley County Commissioner Carol Bowman-Muskett and New Mexico State Rep. Patty Lundstrom, D-Gallup.

They asked him if he could take charge and make a rodeo happen. And he did. With only about six weeks to organize it, Byerley put together a decent rodeo that made money.

The rodeo budget was increased this year and Byerley reports that with support from the community...
