Welcome to Stories Behind the Pictures: Part 3! This picture was taken only a few days ago at a rodeo we visited in Jackson, Wyoming. In this particular photo is a cowboy attempting to survive the ferocity of a bucking bronco. This was one of multiple events in the rodeo, which included bucking broncos- bare back and saddled, bucking bulls, calf roping and barrel racing. For the bucking bronco competition, the rider comes out of the gate on the horse, and attempts to hold on for 8 seconds, while keeping one hand in the air (without touching any other part of his body or the horses) and attempting to look professional while he's at it. This particular rider made it through the 8 seconds. You can see in the picture that he was at 6.61 seconds (see top right corner). We really enjoyed the rodeo, and would recommend the Jackson Hole Rodeo if you ever go to Jackson, Wyoming!

That photo reminds me of Amarillo by Morning, one of my favorite country western songs...”I’ll be looking for 8 when they pull that gate; and I hope the judge ain’t blind; Amarillo by Morning, Amarillo’s on my mind” 😂
