Faster horses said:There was a movie based on the Bad River Suicide Ride. I'll can't remember
the name of the movie tho. I'll have to think about it..........a girl won it
riding an Appaloosa, as I recall.
There were pictures of it in the late 70's also. And I think in the Western
Horseman, but not positive. I remember where we were at the time
and we had an incredible horse that I always thought should have
been an entry. Guess that's why I paid so much attention to the event
through the years.
BMR, that was really interesting reading about the Reeves.
Thanks for posting the story.
1963 wasn't all that long ago in years, but a great long time ago as
far as technology. Imagine them listening to the radio in their pickup.
Of course, they had no house at that time. They really did 'start from
scratch.' Anyhow, as I said, very interesting reading. They certainly were
successful in many ways.
