RIDE TV

For our history buffs out there, here's a new documentary on the Legendary Pendleton Roundup. It's an interesting profile of the historic Roundup, that also details the tragic end of lady bronc rider Bonnie McCarroll. In the last ride of her impeccable cowgirl career, she was fatally dragged in 1929. This tragedy led to the ban of lady bronc riding at the time, and altered the world of rodeo forever. You can enjoy the documentary at Ride TV!

The West’s most epic rodeo comes alive every September in Pendleton, Oregon. RIDE TV presents a new documentary feature film, “Let’Er Buck,” coming soon.

We received this email over the weekend from STI customer Valerie Michel:

"I just purchased my first horse and am really excited about learning to ride. I never rode horses as a child and am learning to ride late in life. Looked easy, so I thought I would try a new hobby. Well as you can imagine, I had a rude awakening after taking a couple of riding lessons!
I was concerned about getting hurt or injured if I fall off the horse, or even worse, dragged by the horse because my foot gets caught in the stirrup. I researched a lot of stirrups on-line. There are a lot out there but I decided to purchase the STI breakaway stirrups. I watched the STI videos, read the information, and talked with Mike at the Company. Mike helped me pick the right ones for me based upon my saddle and type of riding I will be doing. I know I made the right decision. So if something does happen, I know that the stirrups will release and prevent something really bad from happening. Thank you STI! Riding in the STI stirrups will ease my mind when I am in the saddle!

PS – just in case . . . .Mike invited me to trail ride at the ranch whenever I am in Montana! This must be western hospitality. . . that would never happen in Detroit Michigan! :-) "

Here is Valerie with her first horse, Devon, just moments after he was unloaded and handed over to his new owner. We are so excited for you Valerie! Blessings on all your rides!

Rough Stock Rider Profile:
Jake Leppell, Keene, ND
Saddle Bronc

Jake reflects a bit on his time at the High School National Finals and his support system:

"It felt good knowing that all my hard work paid off this year, and I achieved by goal of making it to Finals. The best part of Finals was meeting all of the new people and seeing old friends from Finals last year."

"My biggests supporters are definitely my mom and dad," Jake says.

Jake came up a little bit short this year for the ND State Title in Saddle Bronc, but he says that he will be going to as many rodeos as he can to keep honing his skills. "Next year, I'll hopefully come home with a State Championship."

We have no doubt you will, Jake. Keep riding tough!

This is an amazing series of photos take by Rockin' Horse Photography out of Jerome, Idaho. This great cowgirl and her fabulous horse walked away from the wreck unijured - a true miracle. As the situation unfolds, the cowgirls foot reachs the 72 degree backward angle that would cause an STI Breakaway Stirrup to release. STI is SO grateful that rider and horse are ok. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned rider, wrecks happen. At STI we want every rider to ride smart and ride safe. Thank you to Yvonne Francois South for the mention on this post!

Rodeo is truly a family sport. It takes a lot of behind the scenes support and faith. Families are there to celebrate the good times and lend a shoulder to ease the burden in the hard times. They provide motivation and even a swift kick in the pants sometimes. Thank you to all of rodeo families out there that make this sport so great!

Our Story

“After being in the cattle business all of my life and rodeoing professionally for sixteen years, I've experienced and witnessed a few horse wrecks. I only got dragged once, but I saw a man get drug to death. But it didn't really sink in until my kids started riding.

My oldest boy, W***y, had size 11 shoes when he was about 10. So I made all of our kids split their boots down the back like a bronc rider. But that still wasn't enough, I figured more had to be done. The idea of a breakaway stirrup finally did come to me, and I know it was a blessing from above. Our number one goal at S.T.I. is to prevent draggings, whether we sell stirrups or not.” -Mike McCoy, Inventor of the breakaway stirrup

For more than 25 years, STI has been in the business of preventing draggings. We are a family owned and operated company and our product is American made. Ride smart. Ride safe. Ride With Us.
