2021 Grand Marshal
The Ouray County Rodeo Association (OCRA) is proud to recognize Guy Gard as the 2021 Rodeo Grand Marshal.
Guy is a transplant to the area, and married into the Ary family who ranched in Ridgway for 3 generations.
Guy along with other Western Slope Rodeo contestants organized the Western Slope Colorado Rodeo finals, which were held in Ridgway in 1995 and continued for several years.
He continued to be a part of the OCRA for 15 years serving as President and Rodeo Chairman. He was instrumental in getting Dodge Corporation as a major sponsor and Flower Motor Company along with it.
Guy would like to recognize the friendships he made while serving on the OCRA committee. He considers it a privilege to be chosen as a Grand Marshal. He would like to recognize the ranchers in the Ridgway valley who through their hard work and commitment to the western style, have made this rodeo a viable event for over 100 years.
Thank you Guy Gard for your incredible service to our community. We are honored and grateful to have you as the 2021 Ouray County Rodeo Grand Marshal!
