Con Jackson (left) and Lee Larrabee (right) are branding and ear-marking an animal near Arkalon, Kansas. Two horses with ropes tied to the saddles are visible in the photograph. Jackson won the riding contest at the Cattleman's Convention in Wichita, Kansas, in the spring of 1901. A horse soon learns to keep the rope stretched tight so the animal has no ability to use the rope to jerk the horse.

Creator: Steele, F. M. (Francis Marion), 1866-1936
Date: Between 1891 and 1903
