A Navajo cowboy straddles a fence before saddling his horse during the annual Keith J. Boyd Memorial Rodeo in Lower Greaswood, Arizona. The Navajo have a long tradition of rodeo and ranching. They began herding in the seventeenth century, soon after the Spanish introduced horses, cattle and sheep into the Southwest. By the1920s, the Navajo were gathering to race horses rodeo-style, often circling the wagons to form an arena. In 1958, the All-Indian Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association was founded by Dean Jackson.
