The background picture on the flyer is the legendary Black Cowboy Jesse Stahl riding Grave Digger at the Pendleton Round-Up in 1916. Jesse Stahl, a professional cowboy widely considered to have set the standard for bronco-riding, was already famous when he competed in the Round-Up in 1912. His performance in the Salinas Rodeo in California that year, and his invention of "hoolihanding," a dangerous maneuver that involved jumping from a horse to a bull before wrestling it to the ground, made him an important attraction at the Round-Up in the four years he competed, from 1912 through 1916.
Let’ErBuck is the famous saying for the Pendleton Round-Up!
