Aiming for the finals

Peggy Sue Garman makes a run for national success in breakaway roping

Knee high to a pig's eye, Peggy Sue Garman was trying out her first rope.

At seven, she began attending rodeo clinics in Belle Fourche.

In high school, she made the National High School Rodeo team and reached the national finals.

At Casper College, she competed with the Thunderbird Rodeo Team.

At 22, she was among the first women to compete professionally in the breakaway event at Cheyenne Frontier Days.

At 25, she broke the arena record at the same venue.

And now, just about to turn 26, Garman and her equine partner, Cash, may be on the road to the finals on the professional circuit.
