Every rodeo begins with prayer and patriotism This rider was thrown upward but landed standing on the horse's neck and then dropped to the ground still upright Many riders are unable to remain on the horse for the mandatory 8 seconds - but this rider was successful After completing his ride the rider transfers to safety on another horse
This rider is about to be thrown by the horse, he crashed to the ground just at our feet along the fence.
One of the many risks of rodeo riding -- getting feet caught in the stirrup as you are thrown off the horse Look at the facial expressions and body language of the men watching the ride
