Calgary Stampede – Rodeo Action

Day one at the Calgary Stampede Rodeo was fantastic.  A number of really great rides on the bulls and the horses throughout the afternoon.  The ropers had a bit of trouble, several cowboys missed with the rope.  But the wrestlers threw themselves at the steers with high enthusiasm.  All the events were exciting, I’m looking forward to the rest of the competition.

Here, Dean Gorsuch from Gering, Nebraska hits the brakes sliding to a stop with the cow on his way to winning the day’s event in a time of 3.8 seconds.
