  • Sunday was the culmination of a three day Challenge of Champions rodeo put un by the California High School Rodeo Association at Amador County Fairground in Plymouth. More than 160 students from nine California school districts competed in the event which has been held at this location for 17 years according to Craig Williams, Challenge Chairman on Sunday, March 23, 2014. One of the competitors was blind student Taylor Howell, 18, of Acton in Los Angeles County who competed in the bareback competition finals. He was thrown of the horse in a matter of seconds but got to his knees and gave a thumbs up as help arrived to assist him. Standing his trailer after his competition nursing his hand with a bag of ice Howell said that the way he competes is because he wasn't babied as a kid. "Always being pushed to do what I wanted to do rather than what everybody else wanted me to do. Just determination I guess. It might not be the same way that somebody else does it but I find the way that works for me." Howell who has been blind since he was one and a half -years-old says that he has played high school football, rides horses and dirt bikes.
