PRUNEDALE, CA – A beautiful memorial roping tribute to Kelley Clausen, the late wife of Bruce Clausen, was held Saturday, July 6, at Clausen’s Arena.
We (the Clausen family) were so touched to see family and friends come to memoralize our mom, grandmother, wife and friend and share their western tradition, and we are very grateful that you shared this special day with us.
Huge thank you to the Hoskins family for their donations and support. Darrick led us in a wonderful prayer and such kind words about Kelley.
Thank you to those who helped make the day run so smoothly including Stormi Clausen Bargar, Krystal Clausen Monahan, Kali Bargar, Cade Bargar, Sage Bargar, Karson and Moises. Thank you to Hank Brown for flagging and to everyone else who jumped in and helped us. It truly takes a tribe to pull a roping like this off and we love our tribe.
Congratulations to our saddle winners Tanner Smith and Larry Clover.
A Warm-Up Roping was held on Friday night and buckles were awarded to Billy Armendariz and Tristan Luther.
