Don't be surprised if these horses look familiar. I've featured the Westernaires many times on this blog.
The Wells Fargo Stage Coach also made an appearance.It was joined in the arena by this show team of Percherons.
miss a chance for reference photos!
Most people think that riding bulls is the most dangerous job in the rodeo, but I'm not convinced that heading a team of six Percherons is any safer.
Those big boys really wanted to go!
The "Kiss Cam" kept the audience laughing...
as did this rodeo clown.
His act included a lot of
some water arena skiing.
The cutest act of the night was the Mutton Bustin.
In this event, five and six year old children attempt to ride a sheep...
all the way across the arena.
Most of them are not successful, but this little girl made it!
Everyone gets a trophy!
Truth be told, I enjoyed the entertainment part of the rodeo as much as the actual competition. This was really a fun night. I wish horse shows could be so entertaining!
