I kept hearing how much the horses love it, and they were amazing horses, but it made them tired!
For my money the best riders of the weekend were the blokes who had to catch the broncs after they’d either thrown their rider or at the end of the time. They were amazing! Riding flat out, catching the horse and then calming it down before taking it back to the enclosure
The bravest were the ones who faced the bulls – on foot – kept them from stomping on the bloke they’d just thrown off, calmed them down and herded them into the enclosures.
