Open (pro) saddle bronc at Taupo rodeo.
This is taken at the 2010 Taupo rodeo in New Zealand. I compete in rodeo myself and when not riding love to take photos. It is my sport and passion I do not appreciate rude and disrespectful comments. I don’t want to know what may go on at some rodeos but not ever rodeo is like what you see on youtube. Those are usually the very few none professionally run ones over the world. This rodeo and all other in New Zealand are run by the NZRCA (new Zealand rodeo cowboys association) they are all professionally run with strict rules and regulations as well as an animal welfare code and officers there on site as well as many vets. Before you say anything against my photos I advise you read up the new Zealand animal welfare code for rodeos and the NZRCA rule book so you know what really goes on. Thank you for your time in reading this if I can see that you have been respectful to me and read this comment then I will be respectful to you and read yours. Once again thank you for reading.
