Gary Miller, owner of Dallas' Round-Up Saloon who is also a former TGRA president, explained that while men and women compete together in chute-dogging, the top male competitor and the top female competitor both get first place trophy buckles.
Miller encouraged people who might be interested in participating in rodeo come to Fort Worth to see the sport's finest athletes and recommended the camp events for those just starting.
"Try goat decorating," Miller said.
Miller and his partner, Alan Pierce, have been named honorary grand marshals of the rodeo.
Miller joked that it was a role he was getting very used to filling. Two weeks ago, the pair were grand marshals of the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade.
"It's an honor for us since we've been involved since the 1980s," Miller said.
Miller was among founding members of Texas Gay Rodeo Association in 1985 and served as its first president.
Miller said the Round-Up Saloon sponsors five participants by paying their entry fees. He said rodeo can become an expensive sport, especially for those traveling with their horses.
"It's a big deal to trailer one in, especially from the coasts," Miller said.
He said the trip takes several days because they have to stop every few hours to exercise the horses.

Dr. Vidya Miller, former wife of the sheriff's brother, Gary Miller, claimed that in 1988 her then-husband had asked her to lend Doran Miller $ 60, 000, to cover money missing from the secret drug-buy fund.
Gary Miller, a sheriff's deputy at the department, retracted the story about his brother taking public funds.
The special prosecutor's investigation stretched through all of 1993 and into 1994.After a year and a half, McClure found there was not enough evidence to charge Doran Miller, Gary Miller or anyone else with a crime.
Miller was running for mayor of Franklin in the 1995 Republican primary when, one week before the election, information surfaced about a controversial change to his sheriff's pension.
To comply with new IRS rules, Johnson County officials had changed Miller's pension to reflect the gross amount he was paid for prisoner meals, not the net profit he made.That had the effect of doubling his pension, but it also increased substantially the taxes he owed.
Miller lost the primary election to Herschel Cook and blamed his defeat in part on a newspaper article about the pension question.
The loss spelled the end of what might have been a promising political career.
I think there was a time when he could have been an area representative for the General Assembly, Scroggins said.I think he had the potential to do that..
Miller later left the Sheriff's Department and worked with the U.S. Marshals Service and the Indiana Sheriff's Association.His bankruptcy filing lists income of $ 50, 000 in 1998 from the sheriff's association and from work as a bail bondsman, and $ 54, 000 in 1999 from the sheriff's association.The documents also indicate Miller operated a business, Doran Miller Bail Bonds, from June to September 1999.
Miller no longer works for the sheriff's association, but court documents indicate recent employment with Sheriff's National Data Systems of Cleveland, Ohio.
Tax woes
IRS officials are prohibited by law from discussing Miller's case specifically, but the dates suggest the tax bill includes income Miller earned as sheriff.
Sheriff pay has been a controversial issue in Indiana because, in addition to base salary, sheriffs also have had access to significant income from other sources.One source was the money allotted by the state to provide meals for jail inmates.
They consist primarily of the Franklin home, valued at $ 180, 000, and Miller's public pension, valued at $ 150, 000.
Loans from friends
According to the bankruptcy documents, Miller began borrowing money from personal acquaintances in 1994, just as his tenure as sheriff was winding down.The personal loans grew more frequent in 1998 and 1999.
The list of creditors reads like a who be Who of Johnson County business and politics.
I am amazed at who these people are.These are people who were trusted confidants of Doran's, said Jones, who often represented Miller in personal and official business.
Jones' November 1994 loan to Miller is one of the earliest listed in the bankruptcy filing.Jones said Miller came to him expressing concern about the pending loss of his sheriff's salary and seeking $ 3, 500, which he promised to repay in a few weeks.
Miller did not explain specifically why he needed the money, Jones said.
He do not specify and I do not ask, Jones said.The pitch to me was that he was in between jobs..
Jones said Miller always acknowledged the debt in subsequent conversations and promised to pay it back with interest, but contact between the two grew infrequent.
Another person who loaned money to Miller is Ina Fleetwood, an accountant and former Franklin clerk-treasurer.
He simply opened my office door and said, ‘I'm in trouble and I need some money, " recalled Fleetwood, who loaned Miller $ 2, 860 in October 1998.The only thing he told me was he needed it for Mutual Savings and Loan..
In contrast, Gary Lee did not consider himself a good friend but rather an acquaintance of Miller.

Gary Miller, left, and Alan Pierce
Alan Pierce and Gary Miller, co-grand marshals with Chris Bengston of this year's Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade, have been partners in life for 26 years, and partners in business for 12.
That's how Pierce met the new president of the Texas Gay Rodeo Association, a man from Dallas named Gary Miller.
That's a big part of why it just keeps getting better for us, because we have these children and grandchildren in our lives," Miller said.
Miller added, "When
By then, Miller had been working for several years at The Round-Up Saloon, thanks to his friendship with bar manager Tom Davis.
And Pierce, who had worked in construction, too, in Houston, was there to handle most of the rebuilding for the bar, Miller said.
Eventually, longtime Round-Up manager Tom Davis died, and Miller took over as bar manager.
"We lived through the '80s, through the AIDS crisis when we all got involved to raise funds to help our friends," Miller said.
"We have a great venue for events, and it's necessary to continue raising money, so we do it," Miller said.
"We enjoy what we do, and we are always trying to think of ways to make things better," Miller said. "We've been very fortunate.
Both Miller and Pierce agreed that luck has been on their side over the years, giving the Round-Up a chance to evolve into "a great place to socialize," Miller said.
We're not known as a place where there's a lot of fighting in the bar, because we just don't allow that," Miller said.
Miller and Pierce said it is a great honor to have been chosen to serve with Bengston this year as grand marshals of Dallas' Pride parade, and Pierce said they feel doubly honored tohave been chosen grand marshals of the Dallas parade and honorary grand marshals of the International Gay Rodeo Association's finals rodeo coming to Fort Worth in October.
"It's a good feeling, a really good feeling, when you're chosen by your friends and colleagues for something like this," Miller said.
