My World Tuesday - Abbotsford Rodeo

Every year our city has a Agricultural/Recreational Fair and Rodeo. this year marked the 100th Anniversary of the fair. Lots to see and lots to do at the fair. Lots to eat as well!! These next pictures are all from the Rodeo. Hard to believe but this is only the second rodeo I have ever been too. And I have lived in this town for years....
The evening's events started with the Ladies Grand Entry and the singing of the National Anthem.

There is Ladies Barrel Riding.

This horse shyed away from the barrels and would not go around them.

There is Men's Bronco Riding. This guy did not last long!!

A 12 year old Cowboy riding a Broncing Bull.

And then there is Calf Roping.

The Calf that managed to slip past the rope!

Every Rodeo has to have a clown and the Clown even has a Horse.

The Mighty Tug of War.

This horse did not want to come out of the stall and do his thing. He just stood there.

And then finally, some Steer Catching, or whatever they would call it. Come along side of the steer and fall off your horse onto its head and flip it to the ground.
