The Champions Ride Saddle Bronc Match celebrated its 64th anniversary on Saturday, August 1.

For more than half a century the Western Edge event has been a premier saddle bronc competition attracting competitors from across the country.

The event is part of the annual programming hosted by Home On The Range, a therapeutic working ranch located in Sentinel Butte, ND. The historic facility provides education, therapy, spiritual guidance, recreational and work activities for up to 36 boys and girls, aged 12 through 19.

Home on the Range uses funds generated from the annual event to aid troubled youth through teaching of appropriate coping skills and counseling.

Once the children have completed their program at Home On The Range, they return to their communities and families as productive and responsible future citizens.
