Rodeo Cowboy on Bucking Bronc

The Rodeo is one of few American traditions that have stayed close to their original roots. These cowboys are as tough as they come. They dedicate their lived to this relentless sport. No matter the outcome of the cowboys last ride he always comes back to saddle up and try for another 8 seconds. Wether going 8 seconds on a bull or bring, these cowboys live more this those 8 seconds them most of us do in a lifetime. This shot was excepted not the Rodeo Hall of Fame and National Cowboy Museum in Aug.
