Watching intently, the next generation of local cowboys sat tall in their saddles on Saturday night.

The National Day of the American Cowboy played out in the Cowboy Capital of the World – Oakdale – and in many other locations across the country on Saturday, July 27. Oakdale Saddle Club Rodeo Grounds opened up for a very hot schedule of events, with temperatures near triple digits for the late afternoon start to the competition. Not to be deterred, cowboys and cowgirls from around the region engaged in the events, battling the hot sun, the dusty arena and their competitors.
