With a high level of danger in many of the events, the rodeo usually makes exciting pictures. But sometimes there’s good stuff between the shots of a cowboy getting thrown by a bull or a textbook ride of a bareback bronc. Here are three pictures that I liked away from the action at the International Finals Rodeo this weekend.
