The Western Wishes kid for the Cowboy Capital of the World Pro Rodeo in Stephenville, TX was 9-year-old Kase, a 3rd grader from Santo, Texas. Attending with us were his mother Ashley and sister Ava. He was diagnosed with Visual Processing Disorder when he was 5 years old along with some other issues. He loves fishing, hunting, camping, and anything about history. His mom Ashley said he is the happiest kid she knows and is always trying to make people laugh or smile with his good sense of humor.

It doesn’t get any more cowboy than Stephenville! It is one of the last stops of the season for the PRCA so the stakes are high for a lot of cowboys and cowgirls trying to qualify for the National Finals. Add in Pete Carr Pro Rodeo animal athletes and you’ve got yourself a rousing good time! We met behind the chutes with bull fighter Bryce Redo, pick up man Jeremy Willis, bull rider Alex Cardozo and rodeo clown Gizmo McCracken. We watched from box suite seats where you can get dirt kicked up on you if you are lucky😊 Kase enjoyed a special introduction to the crowd by announcer and committee member Ben Clements and a visit from rodeo royalty to boot. This was definitely a feel-good wish and it was a pleasure hosting Kase!

I would like to take a moment to stress the importance and benefits of equine therapeutic riding centers. Kase’s mom said TREAT Therapeutic Riding Center at Tarleton State University has helped him TREMENDOUSLY with his communication skills, hand/eye coordination, and core strength. This is something I hear time and time again. These centers are expensive to run and rely on a lot of volunteers. Several years ago I volunteered for one and it opened my eyes to what a horse does for a person and the impact they make in our lives. It is hard to put into words what you feel when you watch a 1000 lb horse carry a severely handicapped teenager who is obviously having the time of their life. The same horse that can gallop a pasture at top speed stands so patient and still as a vulnerable child is put upon their back. A former marine with PTSD can find some sense of peace when he trots around an arena and has only the horse to focus on. So if you have extra tack or cash laying around donate to a equine therapeutic center. Or donate your time to this worthy cause. Your life will be better because of it.

Thank you’s

The entire Stephenville Committee, especially Casey Hammons who always works hard to provide a great experience for the wish kids

I saw all three rounds on Cowboy Channel Plus. Had to use my headphones for round one because the audio was really low.
