Creating a new generation of cowpokes in Platte County

Tyler Boyd is one of the instructors that is helping newbies learn how to ride and rope each Wednesday night at the Boyd ranch in Wheatland. He is the patriarch of the Boyd family and gladly opens up his ranch with wife Shonda to bring up the next generation of cowboys and cowgirls.

2021 Year in Review

WHEATLAND – Tyler and Shonda Boyd have opened up their ranch and with their daughter, Easton, they have developed a new beginners roping and riding class that will bring up the next generation of Wyoming Cowboys and Cowgirls.

Although Shonda Boyd doesn’t know what it all entails and has not formed a curriculum per se, she has an end goal of getting people excited about riding and roping as they become more proficient at it.

“I want to have Wheatland to have more things to do,” Boyd said. “Things that are fun and affordable. I mean, why not make it free. I have an arena so let’s get together in Wheatland and start learning.”

The sessions were a brainchild of the Boyds as they were having coffee and wondering what they could do to better serve the community. Although Boyd does have some equipment, she is encouraging people to bring their own equipment.
