THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE AN "UNTHROWABLE COWBOY" ON AN "UNRIDABLE HORSE" Each summer, at Monte Vista, in the San Luis Valley, riders and horses from the mountain cattle country and the ranches of the Southwest gather for the "Ski-Hi Stampede." There are no paid participants. Every rider must be an honest-to-leather cowman, ready to give the best he has in competition with his fellow buckaroos. Photographs by J. E . Magruder THE TAKE-OFF FOR AN UNPLANNED THREE-POINT LANDING Even the best riders hit the dust now and then, when a stubborn broncho, with twitching muscles like steel springs, objects to being ridden.
