Zava Zupan, right, hangs on as MacKenzie Holmberg tries to guide their horse across the finish line during the cowboy rescue event at a ranch rodeo Sunday in Steamboat Springs. The event drew about a dozen competitors, casting them against one another in various horse and rope events. The South Routt Cowboys, with Madison George, Morgan Goerge, Joe Schalnus and Taylore Schalnus, emerged atop the standings. "It was a blast," Joe Schalnus said. "Sure beat a day of work."
