These former rodeo champions of the 1940’s and fifties are ‘off to the rodeo’ in fine style.

Shown from left to right are: Urban Doan, Jack Wade, Earl Doan, Muff Doan, and Hebert Burke.

Earl and Urban Doan won the Ponoka Stampede Bareback Championships in 1940 and 1941, while Muff Doan captured no less than five PS bareback and bull riding titles in 1941-1942 and 1946.
