Posts Tagged ‘Tucker. Arena’

If you haven’t guessed I’m a teeny tiny bit partial to a good Rodeo. In fact some of the smaller ones actually provide far better viewing (and photographic) opportunities than the big gig at the Calgary Stampede, while still attracting both quality livestock and highly ranked cowboys and cowgirls.

The Pincher Creek Fair and Rodeo was no different.¬† Classed as one of Canada’s Pro Rodeo’s and listed on the Canadian Pro Rodeo circuit with a total payout in excess of $41,000, it is contested over 3 days in August and there is certainly plenty of time for highlights, low lights, bone crunching, people watching and enjoying good ole Canadian Country Hospitality.

Obviously the Cluck, Cluck, Run Chicken Races would have been a bonus to see (as per my last post), but I can quite happily say that I enjoyed my day out in the country air and i hope you do too.

A Saddle Bronc rider hangs on

Dreaming.. one day they might just well be out there too

Just like this Cowgirl… a barrel racing competitor rounds the second barrel

Don’t forget your boots!!!

An official looks on while there is a break in proceedings

A Calf Roping competitor prepares his horse before his run

A horse stares as he waits for the calf to be tied

A horse applies it’s breaks so the rider can dismount in one swift motion

Team work. Two calf ropers exchange gear (and horse) so the next competitor can go

A bull rider escapes the arena

pick up men enjoying the afternoon rodeo

Furious and focused, the bull wants him man
