Larry "Little Beaver" Condon

by Dave Red Boy Schildt
(Los Angeles, CA)

Hi,

Larry was the first (to my estimation) RCA level Indian Bull Rider. He qualified to the NFR alongside Jim Shoulders and George Paul in 1961 0r 64.

He won Calgary in 1961.

He was still riding bulls in 1988.

He qualified to the Indian National Finals in the 70's in ABQ,NM.

He's about 80+ yrs old now and barely gets around in Omak, WA. His hometown. He is a member of the Colville Indian Tribe.

I don't know what the qualification is for being mentioned or not but I just thought he might be considered.

Thanks,

Dave Redboy Schildt

Larry "Legend" Condon
by: Abby Farrow-Stapleman

I met Larry when I was 4 years old at the Pendleton Round Up, he was friends with my Auntie Putt & Uncle Johnny Wahsise. He always had a smile on his face and a handshake or hug for those that knew him. He would sit with me at rodeo's and watch over me and tell me historical rodeo stories. I called him "Uncle" and he called me "sister or sweetie". I will always have love for him, respect and his uncanny ability to call people out on their tall tails of saying they rode and won, when in actuality they didn't. He came from the black hat, white starched shirt and wrangler jeans (Lee checked jeans at times). He was the greatest Indian Cowboy and will be remembered for all his accomplishments, but mostly for being the Real Deal! RIP

Larry Condon, My Friend
by: John Sumerlin

Larry was one of the best friends I had on the rodeo circuit. He was always there to encourage me. One time I drew Rossers bull Wooly Burger. He was a bucker. Larry slapped me so hard just before I nodded my face I didn't dare fall off. Larry was my buddy. I will always have fond memories of him.

cowboy last ride
by: Cheryl/niece

Please Note on June 4, 2014. Larry "Little Beaver" Condon had died from a freak accident. A logging truck at the intersection of 155 Hwy. took his life. He will surely be missed from all his cowboy fans.
