ENTERPRISE — One good thing has emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic — it brought out more participants to this year’s Junior Rodeo at the Wallowa County Fair in Enterprise.

Some 80 kids participated, said Dena Miller, the fair board volunteer who oversees the rodeo. She said that was a bit more than normal.

“There’s not a lot of places for kids to go,” she said. “People are just wanting to get out and go places and have a place for their kids to compete.”

Miller said two of the youths who participated and earned the overall high points won certificates that, when redeemed, will get them new saddles. Cidney Estes and Hanley Miller were the winners.

Two others, Jaycee Goodwin and Porter Swan, earned breastcollars for achieving reserve overall high point.

Miller said the rodeo, put on partly as a fund raiser for the fair, raised about $5,000 in entry fees and office fees. She said that money will go to the fair board, which she hopes will invest in back into the fairgrounds “to make it a better place for future events.”

She said that in holding the rodeo, organizers saw things that worked well and others that could use improvement. Of the latter, she said, the main thing is the arena ground. She said there is a layer of hard sand under the topsoil that makes it slick for horses when turning, such as in barrel races. The arena needs to be dug deeper and a new layer of soil added, she said.

“It’s totally doable,” Miller said.

The all-around winners in their age groups were:
