The Old West and all the dirt, spurs and cowboy hats that come with it were alive at Ventura's Seaside Park on Sunday as 2,000 people gathered for the Country Western Rodeo. Making its third stop here since it was started about 20 years ago by police officers in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, Sunday's event was hosted by the National Police Rodeo Assn. The group comprises 100 peace officers and firefighters from throughout the state who like to ride, rope and wrestle livestock.

A cigarette hanging from his lips, Don Marcotte opened the chute and another steer roared into the arena with two horsemen in pursuit, lariats swinging. It's another Sunday for Marcotte at his R&R Equestrian Park in Fillmore, the county's only public roping arena. For hours he tended the chute while about 50 riders from as far away as Los Angeles and Santa Barbara practiced roping steers. The R & R is not an arena for the rhinestone cowboy. One small bench serves as the grandstand.
