Cattle handling demonstrations, a horse whisperer, Buffalo Bill, a trick roper, an old west parade and a ranch rodeo. What could all these events possibly have in common? They were just a few of many events taking place during the Nebraska Sandhills National Day of the Cowboy.

The Fourth Annual event was held in Ainsworth on July 17-19. The National Day of the Cowboy is an annual event that takes place in several different towns throughout the United States. The event was started after United States Senator Craig Thomas of Wyoming drafted legislation that created “the official United States Day of Recognition of the American cowboy and cowgirl, out of the feeling that the cowboy’s courage, hard work, and honesty played an integral part in adding to the foundation on which America was built,” according to a brochure distributed at the event.
