Spanish Fork Rodeo

This weekend Jonny and I went to the Spanish Fork Rodeo. I had never been to a rodeo and my friend had told me this one was awesome so we decided to check it out. It did not disappoint. Jonny had been in California for two weeks so I picked him up from the airport in the afternoon and then in the evening we headed down to Spanish Fork. Before the rodeo started we checked out the vendor booths and the car show and then headed over to the arena for the show. (You can't tell from the picture but I also wore cowboy boots. Yes Karleigh, they were your boots and that is your hat and your shirt.)
It was so cool. I honestly don't know how these guys stay on the bucking broncos and the bulls. All I know is it does not look comfortable. There was only one guy who really got thrown up in the air and made you cringe as he hit the ground but he seemed fine.
One of my favorites was the Mutton Busters: little kids riding on sheep. It was so funny all these kids probably 8 and under holding onto the sheep as they go running around. One kid rode it backwards and was just hanging on with all his might. Unfortunately I missed getting video on the best Mutton Busters. I did get some good steer roping video thought. I have no idea how the guys rope steer so quickly, the are out of the chute and done in about seven seconds, it is crazy. I was also amazed by the trick riders. I got video of this too but I think it is too big for blogger. It was pretty crazy though. Still the highlight had to be the bull riding, those guys are crazy. It was totally worth it and lived up to my rodeo expectations.
