Jr. Miss Rodeo South Dakota

I began the month of October by attending the Harold Heinert Memorial Rodeo In Mission. It was a memorial rodeo to honor Harold (1949-1985). The great Native American tradition, where the family of Mr. Heinert gave thanks to those who have helped them through the tough times, celebrated his life by giving away over 200 star quilts. Each person’s name was announced and the Heinert family members wrapped these quilts around the special people they honored for helping them during the time they lost their father. What a beautiful tradition and honor to receive a star quilt! These quilts where all absolutely beautiful. It was a wonderful event with great roughstock and team roping. McKenzie Haley, Lady-in-waiting, and I were guests of the Heinert family, we carried flags and cleaned the arena.
