Round 1 of the Built Ford Tough Rodeo Finals. I had a chance to see it in person from suite seats. While I love suite seats, as a photographer, it’s not the best seat in the house. This was my first rodeo since I started photography and I knew it would be a challenge to get any worthwhile shots. I was challenged in lighting and distance but had a great experience and hopefully will get a chance someday to work it from the photographer seats.
The photo posted here shows Luis Blanco being carried out of the arena. He suffered a broken ankle after being stepped on.
