Kent Snidecor was born June 30, 1943, outside of San Bernardino, California. Kent left California when he was 17, the day he graduated from high school. He stayed in New Mexico with the Mescalero Cattle Association until November 1963 at age 20 and wound up in Sublette County, where he met Cheryl Stone. In the spring of 1972, Kent and Cheryl went to work for the Hoback association. Kent spent 10 years with the Hoback, always taking some colts to break as well as well as shoeing some outside horses. During the winters of 1972-1978 he worked on the James ranch near Daniel. Kent and Cheryl’s son Boone was born in 1976. Kent has always taken pride and strived to improve his ability to put a good handle on the horses that he rides. He spent 16 years cowboying in the Hoback Basin and worked for the Fish Creek Cattle Association. Through the years he also worked for the Grindstone Cattle Company near Daniel, helped his son Boone with cattle work, and spent time on the Saunders Ranch bringing their cattle off the range of the Hoback.
