CHEYENNE – Laramie County Community College sophomore Sage Miller struggled to find the sweet spot in the length of his stirrups this season.

It’s a common issue for saddle bronc riders. They need to be able to have their stirrups tight enough they can push off them in an effort to stay in the saddle, yet long enough they can get a spur stroke that impresses the judges and increases their scores.
