A Love Of Rodeo

By December 28, 2012

As the holidays slip by and we look forward to the New Year, let's take a few minutes to reflect on why we love the sport of rodeo. Rodeo is a diverse sport with a variety of events, offering a little something for everyone. Some of these events, such as bull riding, are displays of raw power. Other events, such as barrel racing and roping, pair talented cowboys and cowgirls with skilled horses in events that push the limits of speed and agility. Many rodeo enthusiasts like to watch from the sidelines, while others log thousands of hours on the road traveling from rodeo to rodeo in pursuit of their dreams.

Why do you love rodeo? What draws you back, day after day?  Is it the promise of a big check, or the pure adrenaline rush of a successful run?

My wife and I return every year to the Jr Rodeo I can’t begin to explain what an awesome group of people we are priviledged to enjoy from the PeeWee cowboys and cowgirls on stick horses to the young men and women competing in the bulls, broncs, and barrels the comittees and the many parents we’ve come to be close friends with out at the trailers around the cattle pens and once in awhile a BBQ. It’s been an awesome way to raise our daughter and I can’t think of any place else I’d rather spend my weekends.
