Ride ‘em Cowboy

By Carol Spicer.
 
The annual Clifton Elementary School “Kindergarten Rodeo” left some 63 students breathless by the end of the morning on Friday, May 9, as they all participated in fun and games at the Central Texas Fairgrounds. New this year, the kids all had a chance to actually ride a horse. The horses were walked down through the lower field being lead by CHS students, such as Hunter Harris and Colby Davis. Some had ridden before, but most had never even sat on a horse.
