As an 18 year old city boy being raised in Dallas I had the opportunity to ride horses with a classmate in Mesquite Texas. His father owned a brick factory next to the old Mesquite Rodeo and owned several horses. We rode his horses in the grand entry and had prime seats to watch local cowboys beat the ever lovin crap out of themselves on bulls and broncs. It just seemed like it would be so much fun, three of us paid our entry fees, signed all the waivers, and had our opportunity to beat the crap out of ourselves on a bull. My experience lasted for 3.2 seconds and was enough for a lifetime. That experience, however, started a whole new surge in me to someday have my own horses. At the age of 60 I was able to get my own horses and the rest is history. The ole body won't let me run too long but trail riding is my best source of relaxation.
In 2006 I started my own small photography business and have been interested in equine photography, nature photography, and anything other than formal studio photography. I started hanging around local rodeos and just can't get enough of them. I guess the challenge is to catch the participants in mid air, whether being bucked off a bronc or a bull or jumping off a perfectly good horse in an effort to grab a calf and put it on it's back. One thing I must add is my fascination with the cowboys who do rodeo ... they are special breed and sometimes photographing them in a candid moment speaks volumes about their character.

Thanks, Mike, for starting this group. Let's share some talk and some pictures!
