We were so excited planning this fall fashion shoot!  It was a given we wanted to include the whole family.  What an opportunity – to showcase so many members of one family so closely associated to so many different aspects of professional Canadian Rodeo.

 

The patriarch is Emil Chomistek.  In the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame there is the horse he tried repeatedly to train, then sold her to the late Harry Vold . The mare’s name was JH Necklace, a World Champion Bareback horse inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007.  Today, Emily has two Gold Rodeo Cards.
