How old is rodeo?
Recently I heard that in 1906, the very first car was in Payson, owned by a doctor. I have forgotten the doctor's name and the model of his car.
Prior to this date, there had to be horse-and-buggy for transportation.
I believe the first rodeo started somewhere in the 1800s and as time passed, the rodeo became elaborate today it is complete.
We have the best rodeo in Payson. People would be lost without it. Let's enjoy it every year.
I had been so impressed that there had been cowboy church at 9 a.m. Sunday. God's blessing was on the event of this rodeo performance and everything went so well.
