Post challenge:

Thanks all for the great comments!!! I drive the rodeo organizers out of their minds by always being right on the ground by the fenceline when shooting rodeo. But that is the only way to get a shot like this, when the horse has shucked his rider and is bucking himself out before being chased back to the holding pen.

I dont know the name of this horse, but as the bucking stock owner is nearby in PQ I may send them a small jpg and ask their name. Still, I love the grit that this horse showed in performance and of course the flying sand and dust. So proud of Grit!!
