Courtesy of Valley County Historical Society / For The Courier

Curley Seely was a bronc rider in the 1920s who frequented the local Valley County rodeos. His first money ride was on another horse on July 4, 1921, by the name of "Bouncing Betty." It was reported that he and only one other cowboy made qualifying ride on that horse. In this shot, Seely is riding "Funeral Wagon." This was at the original Valley County fairgrounds north of the present day Glasgow High School.
