Happy Canyon

From the Happy Canyon website:

It's a show depicting the settling of the American West, beginning with a portrayal of the Native American way of life prior to the arrival of the white man, continuing with the arrival of Lewis and Clark, followed by the prairie schooners of the pioneers of the Oregon Trail and concluding with a reenactment of a frontier town's rollicking main street mishaps.

The actors are members of the community, mostly volunteers, and include many Native Americans from many different tribes, who travel from all parts of the northwest to participate in what for many is a longstanding family tradition.

....

Clint was asked to ride in the Happy Canyon Quadrille team this year (which I have been calling 'Horse Square Dancing') and was in each evening's performance. Lindsay, Haley & I went to the Saturday evening performance, and I was blown away by how detailed the performance was. The Quadrille team wraps up the event (Clint's in a white shirt), and the crowd loved them Saturday!
