Specialized equine athletes— from broncs to barrel racing horses—win accolades in rodeo for their speed, timing and skills in the specific events for which they are trained. However, there are equally athletic and highly skilled horses, their names and stories rarely known, that are often unnoticed and underappreciated. 

Sarah McKibben was one of the many talented horsewomen who showed their American Quarter Horses at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo’s Versatility Ranch Horse Show.

FLOATING HORSES: THE LIFE OF CASEY TIBBS, a new documentary directed by Denver filmmaker Justin Koehler about rodeo’s greatest cowboy who transcended the sport to become a household name with his revolutionary talent and flamboyant personality during the 1950s, will screen on Thursday, November 9 at 5pm at the Lone Star Film Festival in Fort Worth, Texas at the Four Day Weekend theater.
