Preparing to Ride

Preparing to ride a bronco

A Well trained horse

Horse comes to a stop as part of calf roping.
After roping the calf, this cowboy’s horse has come to a complete stop. This allows the rope that is connected to the calf to become taut. The cowboy can then capture, flip over the calf and tie its legs together in a minimal time.

Still Competing

This cowgirl is 72 years old and still competing in barrel racing at the Russian River Rodeo. Looking closely, it appears that the horse is blind in its left eye.

Determination

Get Off My Back

Cowboy in suit and tie riding a bucking bronco.
A cowboy is trying to stay on this bucking bronco. The rider is trying to bring back a tradition of dressing in a coat and tie while riding the horse. The announcer at the Russian River Rodeo stated that when rodeos began, riders dressed formally in suits and ties. On another note, this rider qualified for winning money and a belt buckle by staying on the mandatory 8 seconds.

Team Roping

Two cowboys are teaming together to rope this calf. One has already lassoed the horns, and his partner is attempting to lasso one of the calf’s rear legs. This is a timed competition.
