An Exceptional Rodeo...

On my way back to Eastland for the second game of baseball between Wylie and Mineral Wells I was assigned to shoot the Exceptional Kids Rodeo at the Cowboy Heritage Church in Clyde. It was a fun little event where special needs kids get to try out some of the events and be a rodeo cowboy for a couple hours. Of course, the events were a little different than what you'd see at a real rodeo, but they were a lot safer too. Like, the roping used roping dummies instead of real calves and the "bucking events" were using the practice devices too, but it was obvious the kids were having fin. Plus, they did get to ride real horses and meet real cowboys and rodeo queens. It was a fun event to be able to capture the fun that these kids were having.
