Jackie Culham remembers her first official ride at the Pendleton Round-Up.

She waited during slack early in the week, ready to make her barrel racing debut - as was the sport itself, in a way - at the 2000 Round-Up. A relatively low-key crowd looked on. Some cowboys sat near the field and watched the early runs. And the significance of the occasion wasn't lost on anyone, Culham said.
