THE DEVERAUX FAMILY
We are the Deveraux's - Craig, Jolene, Abi, Cooper & Jake. We ranch south of Newcastle, WY running a
combination of cows and yearlings. The Deveraux ranch is outfitted with an indoor and outdoor arena, affording the
family year-round ability to train and work horses in spite of the unpredictable Wyoming weather.
Abi is a sophomore at Casper College and will be receiving her Associates in Business this May. She took the year off
from rodeo but plans to resume her college rodeo career this fall. The horses she has hauled and rodeod on will have
been exposed to a wide variety of situations and tough competition.
Jake and Coop are sophomores in high school now, and while they play sports as well as rodeo currently. Jake ropes
calves and heels for Coop, and is dabbles in the steer roping. Cooper ropes calves, heads for Jake, and dabbles in
saddle bronc riding. They finished 5th last year in the Wyoming High School Rodeo Team Roping standings, one hole
out of qualifying for Nationals. Both boys had a good rodeo year and Coop topped it off by winning a trailer at the
Sheridan Elks Youth Rodeo last fall, winning the High Point All-Around, competing in five events on one horse.
Jolene seems to have found her role as the family/rodeo/sale photographer. She can usually be found on the backside
of the camera doing what she really enjoys, taking pictures of her family, horses and friends.
With running yearlings and cows comes a lot of sorting, doctoring, etc. Craig and the kids are horseback all the time
doing what needs to be done through the course of every day. The sale horses we offer get used in many different
settings....cowhorse and ranch horse competitions, rodeos, ropings and ranching. Craig spends countless hours aboard
every horse we have teaching the basics and instilling a good foundation. Then he and the kids take them on to other
levels of performance, ie, cow horse, ranch horse, head horse, heeling, calf roping, goat tying, etc. It is important to us
that our horses learn to move and perform correctly regardless of which career path is taken. Craig continually exposes
himself to many great horsemen and takes advantage of the knowledge they share with him and applies it to his daily
horsemanship skills on the Deveraux sale horses. As times allows, we take the kids to many different clinics, as well, so
they are gaining perspective, which is also a benefit for themselves, to the sale and the horses.
We take the Full House Elite Performance Stock Horse Sale very serious and do the best job we can do to represent
each horse just as they are.
