Like I said in my first rodeo post, I have a hard time understanding why a grown man would get on the back of a bull, that is tickled in the private parts area - and on top of that, just for fun. Dont get me wrong, its fun to look at, but that’s about the extend of it for me. Even in the pen before the event, the bulls look mean, so I assume it can only go downhill from there.
On to the images. Instead of making a post per image, I’ll show a few of my favorite shots from the bull riding event here in one post. I shot all my shots – about 800 shots – from my seat in the stands, so the control of light and background is a bit of a toss-up. But now I know that for the next time they are in town. I still think they are worth showing, but I’ll leave that up to you to decide.

He didn’t last long. Btw, this guy had to take a trip to the emerge (mentioned in my previous post). Dislocated shoulder i think. They couldnt pop it back in to place on site. – Yep, cowboys are tough..
A really bad spot to be in – cause….
… just because you are done with the bull, doesn’t mean the bull is done with you. – I would
probably need to change my pants if i laying in the dirt right there. Look at his left arm. Ouch!! Not good.. not good at all.
Next up: Rodeo clowns and other rodeo staff. Stay tuned.
