Rimrock Rodeo hosted a bull riding and barrel racing event Aug. 25, all proceeds to the Blagsdel Family

This event showed how close knit rodeo athletes and their families are to one another, as they showed
such a strong support for Jason Blagsdel's family.  Jason met with a fatal accident in a rodeo in Wyoming where a bull threw him. He died of his injuries after the accident, leaving a wife and daughters.  If you read the Daily Sentinel's story and saw Chris Tomlinson's photos, then you know what a great person Jason was, always willing to help others through thick or thin. Look on the paper's publication for Aug 20, a Monday, or I might be incorrect,  Aug 21. The story will inspire you and the photos will linger in your hearts...
Here are the photos I was able to get. More bull riding shots to come...

Rim Rock Rodeo number 12

Here are the rest of the photos I was able to edit and post from Rodeo number twelve.
Remember the lighting conditions. I just never use flash with animals when competitions are
going on. Action shots are always a challenge and perhaps someday I will fall heir to a 1.4 or 2.8 zoom lens.  
Remember, August 25, Saturday, at 7pm there is bullriding competition at Rim Rock. See you there.

The heavens opened and we had rain, finally. But the crowd was light. That did not matter as the rodeo went on. The bulls really preformed with the cooler temperature. but a few riders were successful.

Bull Riding: Garrett Marchin71 -73, Zack Zammeron 72.

In the photos you will find the light is bad, but the rain was so welcome and cool. Send me a winning lottery ticket please someone, so I can buy those 2.8 zoom lenses, or even those 1.4. Then who knows what I could do. Anyway, enjoy what I was able to post.  Here are the beginnings of photos I have had time to edit. More will follow.

So sorry gals, my camera lens does not do well in bad light. but this gives an idea of your speedy sport.
