Settled by ranchers lured to northern Arizona by stories of grass
that grew as high as the belly of a horse, the Rim country is home
to the World's Oldest Continuous Rodeo. Local cowboys started the
rodeo as a way to kill time between roundups, but this rugged
ranching tradition quickly grew into a community celebration called
the August Doin's that attracted cowboys from all over the state.
Today, local cowboys grow up around the rodeo, anxiously waiting
for their chance to compete.
