23 saddle bronc and 15 bull riders competed 

ENTERPRISE — Spring showers broke in time for the 10th annual Mountain High Broncs and Bulls Rodeo at the Wallowa County Fairgrounds in Enterprise. Oregon was chosen to host the 11-state Western States Ranch Rodeo Association’s pro tour, attracting 23 bronc riders. 

Travis Yutzie, both a saddle bronc rider and director of the association from Ione, is a regular at the Broncs and Bulls rodeo. Though he wasn’t in the money at Broncs and Bulls, he was headed to Springdale, Wash. Sunday morning for another rodeo.

Ryan Anderson of Tonasket, Wash. had the top score for the bronc riders. He garnered 76 points in the first round and 83 in the second. A cowboy who grew up on a farm riding horses, Anderson is only in his second season in the ranch rodeo circuit. 

During the week, Anderson maintains cell towers, requiring him to climb anywhere from 60 to 200 feet. Because of the travel involved for his day job, Anderson said he participates in rodeos in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. He, too, was headed to Springdale to ride broncs on Sunday.

Other saddle bronc money winners were Hunter Blazier, Weiser, Idaho; Cody Braucher, Lewiston, Idaho, and Tyler Holloway, Vale.

Saddle bronc rider Miles Binger of Heppner has been on the association circuit since 2010. He wasn’t in the money Saturday, but is touring all 11 states this summer. On Saturday night he headed to Sheridan, Wyo. to rodeo on Sunday. Bronc Rider Steve Gillen of Prineville was also headed to try his luck in Wyoming, 775 miles from Enterprise.
