This is definitely a rodeo to shoot. Tour organizers are professional and accommodate newspaper and TV deadlines. The rodeo starts early enough to make deadline with nice images. They also start with bull riding rather than end with it. Finally, the administrators actually track participants by number.

Nice rodeo shot. Looks like the ambient lighting was perfect for this one.

I thought about lighting it, but it was OK for indoor shooting and I was on a tight deadline.
