I love the barrel racing; it's absolutely thrilling to watch.

I love all the events, but I have three favotives. Barrel Racing - the speed in the horses and I complete in this event. Bull riding - the power of the bulls I have some friend who complete. Bronco riding - the power and movements of these horses. I don't see this event at our local rodeo anymore :(

I love pole bending, barrels and bull riding
pole bending-because of the speed agility and talent the horses have to have to do it at such fast speeds
barrels-again the speed and agility but also because i compete in it
bull riding- because of how much strength and power those bulls have and the talent the guys must have to ride that

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

Pole bending is my favorite to do but barrel racing is my favorite to watch!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I love to watch break away roping, but I love to barrel race and pole bend.

I like the saddle bronc. That is the classic cowboy event. Bareback and bull riding is a rodeo designed event. But saddle bronc came from working cowboy stuff. i don't feel that bareback and bull riders allthough exciting don't have the same skill, finnesse and timing that a saddle bronc rider has. it is almost a dance that the rider has to keep rthym with. just my opinion and other mileage may vary.

At Pro Rodeo -

Barrel racing or Saddle Bronc.

HS/Jr High/Little Britches/etc Rodeo -

Barrels, Poles, and Breakaway Roping

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Well I do love bull riding, but I lately I have been intrigued by chuckwagon racing. I have a dream of being an outrider, looks like an adrenaline rush.
