Pollock, Bentz love energy of saddle bronc riding


SHERIDAN — Mitch Pollock didn’t grow up rodeoing. He favored another sport.


And Pollock possessed enough skill on the diamond to play college ball at Blue Mountain Community College in Oregon before deciding to give saddle bronc riding a try at the age of 21. He just loved the energy of rodeo.
