There were (Wh)oops, then whoas and I am certain some pretty big bruises when it was all done. The horses seemed to have fun though. I took these shots at the Inter Tribal Rodeo in Gallup. The afternoon started like most summer days in New Mexico--hot, sunny, an azure blue sky with high white clouds building on the horizon. By the time these guys rode the wind was whipping and a light rain was falling. The show was accompanied by lightning in the distance.That's New Mexico--wildly beautiful.
