SHOT 1/23/2003 - Saddle Bronc competitor Cody Martin, 24, of Hatfield, Ark. poses with his saddle after competing in the National Western Stock Show Rodeo Thursday. Martin went to his first rodeo at 13 years old and was so enthralled with the event that he got on a bronc the following evening. Martin drew an unknown bronc and didn't stay on for the required eight seconds that day, therefore he wasn't given a score. Martin was the 2000 PRCA Rookie of the Year. The National Western Stock Show is held every January at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. First held in 1906, it is the world's largest stock show by number of animals and offers the world?s only carload and pen cattle show in the historic Denver Union Stockyards. The stock show is governed by the Western Stock Show Association, a Colorado 501 (c) 3 institution, which produces the annual National Western Stock Show in an effort to forward the association's mission: "To preserve the western lifestyle by providing a showcase for the agricultural industry through emphasis on education, genetic development, innovative technology and offering the world's largest agricultural marketing opportunities." Proceeds from the National Western Stock Show go to the National Western Scholarship Trust. The Trust awards 64 scholarships annually to students studying agriculture and medicine to practice in rural areas at colleges and universities in Colorado and Wyoming..(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2003)
