May saw a trip out to the Branxston Rodeo in the Hunter, NSW. While many of them are amateurs they still know how to ride a bull.
If the riders were crazy, they are not as mad as these guys who put their body on the line to protect the cowboys.
They also manage to have a bit of fun despite the dangers.
But there is a whole lot more at the rodeo than bull riding. There is some amazing horsemanship as cowboys and cowgirls put their horses to the test.
What I also love about events such as these is it does not matter the age, everyone gets involved.
