Wyatt on Blister

The Arizona High School & Junior High School Rodeo Association’s fall series came to town this weekend. The Better Half and I went to the rodeo grounds this morning to watch some of the youngsters. We were there in time to watch the Junior and Senior Bull Riding events.

In the (clickable) image above, Wyatt, a high schooler, rides “Blister” who was one of the better performing bulls of the day. One of several bullfighter clowns looks on during the eight second ride and then rushes in to distract the bull and help the rider get dismounted. Wyatt had the second best ride of the day among the seniors.

TBH and I have been following the Professional Bull Riders on TV this year and are familiar with the event scoring and particulars. There is a PBR event currently in San Jose with the season finale coming up next week and early November.

We enjoyed getting out and watching the kids and bulls today. Rodeo season, particularly team roping, is in full scale at Wickenburg.
