For Coushatta native Cody Hogan, his dream is about to become reality. At least he and roping partner Lightning Aguilera are well on their way.
They recently competed in the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo in Rapid City, South Dakota. And they split the win by roping their steer in a lightning-fast time of 4.2 seconds.
Hogan credits their success to lots of practice. He says “We really prepared ourselves and our horses before making the trip” to South Dakota. Hogan adds that they knew if they roped sharp and smart they would have a good chance to win.
And like all good cowboys, Cody Hogan gives a lot of credit to his horse Two Short. He says they get along well, describing Two Short as his best friend.
