The Spirit Of Pendleton

|

Crisp fall air fills the stadium, bright bucking chutes dot the green grass, and you know you can only be in one place. The place where stock is run down the hill, instead of a chute and you’ll never see signage hanging in the arena. A place where century-old traditions are alive and shared across generations. A small community unlike any other, where fans and competitors alike put it on their bucket lists, in hopes of fulfilling those gold buckle dreams and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

“Let ‘er Buck.” is echoed throughout the town- and that’s how you know you’re at the Pendleton Round-Up.

Another Round-Up week has come and gone, and the history books have been written by the 2022 ambassadors working to keep the unique traditions and heritage alive. Champions were crowned and everyone took home a few good stories and memories to last a lifetime.

A few of these ambassadors belong to the 2022 Royalty Court and showed what it truly means to embody the spirit of Pendleton, from the traditional leather chaps and short hair to the flowers as a crown. 2022 Pendleton Round-Up Queen, Addie Kilgore described the passion for the community, “Pendleton Round-Up is the heart of Pendleton. It sits right in the middle of town and you can definitely feel the heartbeat and excitement coming from it.” Princess, Brooklynn Been also expressed how important the future generations of rodeo fans are by explaining how her favorite part is getting to connect with children and young fans because she was once in their shoes as well.

These ambassadors, like many others, have served in unique and powerful ways to ensure the spirit of Pendleton is alive and well. For over 100 years, they’ve been letting ‘er buck on that grass and will continue to do so for generations to come.
