Jesse Stahl

In the early 1900′s, Stahl competed in an Oregon rodeo and made an extraordinary ride. However, the judges awarded him second place for a ride that deserved a first place finish.  It was pretty clear that skin color had been factored into the final tally.  To protest the judges’ decision, Jesse rode his next bronco facing backwards with a suitcase in his hand [at right].
