College Rodeo – Grand Junction CO

The rodeos were fantastic and I am getting better at using the camera. I’m still on auto too much of the time, but I’m keeping the horse and rider in frame. This is basically a post of my favorite photos….

Rescue Run is a game where one person (rescuee) stands on a barrel and the second person (rescuer) races to them and around the barrel, the rescuee gets on the back of the horse and the two race back out. Whoever crosses the line first wins. This is always a fun activity for participants and the audience. Makayla (rescuee) and Lyndsie (rescuer) were awesomely fun to watch.

I have really enjoyed this rodeo season and the new camera.  Idaho State University is sending the women’s team of four, and two of our guys to the national rodeo in Casper in June. I’m planning on going there too.  – Jenny

  1. These are so fine. Of course I’m crazy about your bird pictures, but these are fun too. I love your new camera! Talk to me about cameras when you come Jenny, okay? I am so excited to see you and Shanna! Let the games begin!
