The Fourth Annual Ultimate Cowboy Trail Challenge enjoyed much improved weather this year but sunshine did not diminish the challenging nature of the course.
Horses, mules and donkeys competed in the event put on the weekend of Oct. 8-9 by Linda Laird of the Double L in Bishop and Kris Keeler of JKK Performance out of San Dimas.
Of the top 10 riders, six were locals.
Jay Joseph from Santa Barbara took the championship on his 7-year-old Belgium cross gelding Stout, with a near-perfect ride.
Joseph won $1,000, a hand-crafted photo album, bridle, trophy and the coveted blue ribbon.
