Tail is Flying
This is the last shot of rider #52's series and my last post for today. You will notice this bull has reversed directions and spins frequently. Here with hind legs up and tail flying he quickly made a spin and twist and the clowns had to go to work. I was invited into the arena by one of the judges, John Ludlum who has rodeoed for all his life and is writing a book on this event "The George Paul Memorial Bull Ride" and wanted me to take the photographs for that book. The three greatest things a bull rider can win are 1st The National Championship in Las Vegas, 2nd The George Paul Buckle at the National Finals and 3rd Win the George Paul Memorial Bull Ride. I was honored to participate.
