This weekend I went to the rodeo!
Which is one of my favorite things to do.
On any given weekend in 
the great state of Georgia
{heck, make that any state in the south}
you do not have to go far to find a rodeo.
This one was an IPRA event. 

The evenings events were:
-bareback riding
-saddle bronc riding
-calf roping
-steer wrestling
-barrel racing
-team roping
-bull riding

I had a blast!
However, the wind was trying to blow us away.
By the end of the night I was COVERED in dirt. 
It looked like I had rolled around in the ring with the horses;)
I did not get a lot of good pics because I only have a point & shoot. 
I really need to invest in a better camera.
But here are some of my pics.

  1. Oh gosh I think I would have to get on an airplane and fly somewhere to find the nearest rodeo! But this looks like so much fun!!!

  2. Sounds like fun to me! I've been to a few dirt tracks (racing) and it only took one time for me to learn that having sunglasses at night is a must! And the dirt there is BLACK. But I tell ya, it feels kinda cool to be covered in it by the end of the night!

  3. Glad you had a great time! I haven't been to the rodeo since I was about 8 but I remember it being fun hehe!

  4. I'm a southern girl and have never been to a rodeo!! Looks like fun!! :)
