FAMILY TRADITION: Rodeo is a way of life for the Snider family from Cement. Shyann said her father, Rusty Snider, is her mentor. They are pictured here after Shyann competed in the breakaway roping competition Saturday morning, April 17, at the OHSRA competition held at the Grady County Fairgrounds in Chickasha.
