Now those are some awesome photo's!

EvenSong said...

Ouch! That first one looks like it hurt! Is that one of the horse's back feet folded underneath him??

EvenSong~I should have said that no person or animal was injured in any of these photos. The horse was only in that position for a moment and was right back up buckin'. I just got lucky with the timing of the shot.

I'm glad you asked.

That bay on the ground! Fantastic shot! The eye of the horse, not scared, just weary? " When`s he getting off!"

Crystal said...

Wow amazing shots! Looks like the last one is from Calgary Stampede, they are just about 12 miles from us.

Susan said...

What do they call that event. It must be new as I've never seen it before.

Maia said...

Wonderful action shots.

Shirley said...

Do the broncs have trouble with the grass being slippery? I imagine they don't get bucked out on that kind of footing very often.
Had to laugh at those chubby cowboys hoofin' it out of the way; reminds me of Charlie Russell's painting, Bronc to Breakfast.

Crystal~they're all from Pendleton this past Sept.

Susan~LOL...yep...looks like a new event!

Shirley~The grass definitely adds some difficulty...but the PVC pipe edge is what gets the horses the most. It breaks away easily enough that no one ever gets hurt by it...but horses just aren't sure what do think about it sometimes. Like the brown horse coming to the sliding stop...he's right at the PVC fence line. It's only a foot and a half high...but sure makes them think!

Wow, talk about action pictures! Good shots!
