Try that on your Harley.
As I said, they start young. In some of the Junior events, there were riders as young as six. This little girl got a ride in an early competition with the help of an older sister..but she made the circuit. Notice how the horses are tethered together.
Her time was a little over a minute. But that's a start.
Then the big guys took over in the evening show. I'm referring, of course, to the Bulls and the Broncs. Steamboat's rodeo is a combination of local riders and the pros, who come through town on the rodeo circuit. It's held every weekend during the summer.
Going the other direction..
Ay, yi yi...
This guy just kept an eye on me.
End of a pretty neat day.
Can't wait for next year.
Oh, that was fun.
