Reno Rodeo

Hand in hand

Welcome to the wildest richest rodeo in the West.

Ethel's been bummed since we skipped the rodeo last year, so off we went for the last night of it, and hence, all the finals.

Here are a few photos.

I especially enjoyed watching how well-trained the horses were during the individual roping, the horses throwing out the anchor to pull the rope taut and keeping the tension up while the rider finished his work.
