This was a small rodeo, produced as a charity event for a local family of Hulett. We had to ask directions a couple times in this small town lacking even one stop light. I’ve been to rodeos before where they ride and rope bulls and various kinds of cattle. While the bulls clearly do not enjoy their role in the rodeo, it never really bothered me. It was a bit different watching the horses, as I somehow have a higher level of affection for them. We eat cattle, but not the horses, unless unknowingly in France, but that is another story….. Anyway, these horses really put on a show and a fierce performance. In some of the photos below, the horses seem to continue to their anger toward the rider even after they have been bucked off.
Notice the cowboy’s hat is flying off
