I’ve been going through my photo archives and sorting western images for a client. I thought I’d share a few of my western images with you here.

This is one of the younger bull riders who practiced at Gorham’s Bucking Bulls in Lebanon, Oregon a few years back. The younger kids either ride immature bulls, or more often steers (castrated male cattle), which is probably what this one is.

What I like about this shot is that all six of the steer’s and kid’s feet are off the ground at the same time.

If you look closely, you can see the bull fighter (they used to be called rodeo clowns) behind the rider. Those guys are the real heroes in bull riding, risking life and limb to keep the riders from being trampled or gored.
