Western South Dakota Buckaroos more than a trail ride

Starla Lyon

It all began over a cup of hot coffee on a cold and frosty South Dakota morning back in 1966. The Soule building at the Central States Fairgrounds was buzzing with people attending the Black Hills Winter Show. Lyndell Petersen was there and so was Harry Marshall, who at the time was tending a booth for West River Electric Cooperative.

“Things were slow that morning so Harry and I decided to grab a cup of coffee and started talking,” recalls Petersen.

An incredible organization was born from a conversation between two friends on that chilly morning that would change many lives and continues to do so to this day – The Western South Dakota Buckaroos (WSDB).

Petersen, one of the group’s Founding Fathers and a Charter Member, recalls some of the conversation. The former SD state senator and his friend discussed the idea of forming a trail ride that would bring people from both town and country together and before long, it became more than just an idea. The organization came into fruition and people began to take notice, show interest and gather membership.
