Monday Afternoon, July 8
The initials CS were everywhere around the grounds. The C was in the form of a horseshoe.
I like this reflection in the muddy water as the sun came out during the afternoon.
There was novice bareback and bareback. I am not sure which is which in these pictures.
A cowboy threw the clown’s hat in the mud. After this he (the cowboy) picked it up, put it on the other side in the mud, and then put it on the clown’s head.
Preparing some horses in a back field – for a future show.
Tractors leveled the field on a regular basis.
I think this is done whether it is dry or muddy – to make a level playing field.
This man appeared to be checking for uneven areas.
There was usually some kind of entertainment when the tractors were busy on the rodeo field.
More bareback riding.
This one appears to have a saddle. Re-rides were fit in now and then from a previous section.
Ladies Barrel Racing
Notice the timer in the upper left.
Another re-ride – and a face plant this time. 🙁
There is bull riding and wild pony racing to come.
