Heart of rodeo season heats up in Utah

...More prize money, more cowboys and more for spectators to see and do. That’s how organizers of this year’s Days of ’47 Rodeo plan to revitalize the annual rodeo held every year as part of the celebration commemorating the arrival of the Mormon pioneers in 1847.

...The Ogden rodeo will also welcome Miss Rodeo America, who happens to be from Roosevelt, Chenae Shiner. She is a professional barrel racer, and she’ll be on horseback for the five performances.
