Bob Rindt was born in early July of 1910. He graduated from Drake High School and become a school administrator, but he was also a rodeo entertainer.
At 17 he rode 40 miles to Towner where he won $15 saddle-bronc riding at his first rodeo. He became a rodeo producer and a performer – developing a rope and whip act. Bob was so good with a whip he could cut a piece of paper from wife Doris’s mouth at 15 feet.
He raised horses and Brahma cattle on the B.R. Ranch west of Sawyer, worked with 4-H and Boy Scouts, and was a member of 50 Years in the Saddle.
He died in 1997, and in 2010 was inducted into the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.
