All About Rodeos - Still Under Construction
Rodeos and Cowboys!
I love rodeos from bull riding to barrel racing. The cowboys try and earn points throughout the year just for a chance to make it into the top ten and attend the Finals Rodeo held in Las Vegas in December. Depending the event, the cowboy either has to beat a time and/or is judged on his/her performance as well as the performance of the animal.
The clowns have the hardest job in protecting the lives of the cowboys. My favorite clown has always been Flint Rasmussen.
