Salinas, CA, July 23, 2017 – Thanks to the generosity of California Rodeo Salinas Sponsor Darrick Hoskins of MY CARS in Salinas, the 2017 California Rodeo Salinas All Around Champion Jordan Ketscher of Squaw Valley, CA is going home with a custom saddle after winning money in both the Team Roping and Tie Down Roping events. Scott Thomas Custom Saddles and Darrick Hoskins of MY Cars teamed up to sponsor the 2017 All Around Cowboy saddle for the California Salinas Rodeo. “Given the opportunity to be affiliated with such a prestigious event, we knew designing the perfect saddle was paramount. We are confident that the hand crafted custom Scott Thomas Saddle will be as functional as it is beautiful. Congratulations to the 2017 All Around Cowboy winner,” Darrick Hoskins. The All Around Champion at Salinas used to receive a saddle until sponsorship donations for the saddle ended. The 2017 All Around buckle was donated by Pete & Kevin Silacci of the Silacci Ranch.
