|Note from Nathan Graves:
I had a better opportunity to learn how to ride bucking horses than any kid could ask for.
Tommy Wagoner gave me a couple bucking ponies, Amos & Geronimo, when I was nine or ten.
Tommy made sure I knew how to get off and get out of a hang up before I ever got on.
We practiced it. Dad would put everything aside to haul us all to Buffalo in the summer
every other week to Mark Cotters rodeo. Mark let me get on them during the performance.
As I got older John and Emory provided the horses and opportunity to get on as they did
and are still doing for countless other young aspiring bareback and bronc riders.
I pro rodeo'd for over ten years. I become part of the Professional Rodeo community,
made countless life long friends, and saw the hole country, lots of Canada
and part of South America by way of rodeo. I won some good rodeos, placed at a few
of the big ones and made many cherished memories. I now live in Barnum.
I married my true love Tori and we have Noble who was born in March of 2019.
