Ride Em’ Cowboy Don’t Let Them Throw You Down!
The smell of the dirt and the pounding of hooves and the fear of getting hurt. No it’s not a wild heard of buffalo, but it just about as dangerous. I’m talking about Rodeo.
We’ve seen the NILE and the PBR and how some of the riders get thrown around and hurt.
I am here to tell you that even though the Youth Rodeo and High School Rodeos may not ride as big and mean of bulls and the pros there is still plenty of opportunity for someone to get seriously hurt.
I am the mother of a Rodeo Bull Rider, he just started riding so he is very green, but the thrill of the ride is something he lives for and that in it’s self kind of scares me.
Triston has just joined the YRA (Youth Rodeo Association) as well as the Junior High Division.
I couldn’t be more proud of my son than I am with his courage to get on the back of that bull, no matter how big it is.
We just finished the Jordan Rodeo this weekend, the bull above is one of the bulls he drew to ride,and then we re off to Plenytwood and Sidney in a couple of weeks for another fund filled weekend of Rodeo action!
Do your kids rodeo?
What is the scariest part for you?
