This is a commission piece from 2008. My subject is a one of the most well-mannered kids I have ever met. His name is Rick Scruggs from Duncan, South Carolina. Rick has been riding since the age of two. He specializes in “team roping” and “calf roping.” Rick has four horses that he rides and trains. His pride and joy is his horse “Money.” He started team roping and calf roping during his freshman year in high school and has been participating in the SC High School Rodeo Association since that time. He is also a member of several professional rodeo associations. He would travel up to ten hours away to compete most weekends. Rick has won several of these professional rodeos and competed in the 25th Annual George Strait team roping competition in San Antonio, TX. Rick is now attending Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Texas where he will further his education and still be able to learn more about his true passion, rodeo riding.
Rick is posed with his favorite saddle that his Dad bought for him. It’s a high-end “Courts” roping saddle handmade by a company called “McMaster Custom Tack” in Texas. It is one gorgeous piece of work!
