Slack Rodeo in Bridgeport, TX

My daughter Sarah and I got up @ 6:00 AM and headed to a Slack Rodeo in the small town of Bridgeport, TX on 5/8. I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex and drove about 40 miles to Bridgeport which is anything but urban: Pecan Groves, Oil Wells, Ranching. A Slack Rodeo is held when there a too many contestants for the number of slots available for evening rodeo. The top contenders based upon times will perform that evening. We watched some cowgirls compete in Barrel Racing event which is a timed event. The objective is to race around three barrels spaced 60 feet apart with out knocking them over with fastest time. This takes great horse riding skills and a well trained horse. Below are a couple images from that day
