Say, you guys want some ice cream?

Every now and again you capture a shot that just looks a bit odd.  The guy here on the saddle bronc has just finished a full ride of 8 seconds.  But even with the horse still bucking he looks calm, cool, and collected.  It looks like he’s engaged in a conversation with the pickup crew right in front of the ice cream stand.

As you can see in the next picture though, this was a planned maneuver to block the horse and allow him to get off safely.

Pretty cool maneuver and one that takes excellent horsemanship on everybody’s part to pull off and make look easy.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
