In New Zealand there is a growing movement to get rodeos banned. The people protesting this have resorted to using photography & social media to stir up negative emotion. As a result of this, it is becoming increasingly harder to take any photographs at rodeos here. I just love being able to capture the drama of it all & I love rodeo. So thank you everyone that voted on this & thank you for the comments. They are always appreciated.

So well captured! (I wonder if you used continuous regime here to catch the perfect moment). Should've been on top

It's the white of the eye! It's the opening hand! It's the imminence of the big hurt! It's just classic. Congrats on HM!

The horse looks positively demented. And I'm thinking there's some serious pain in that cowboy's immediate future. Great capture.

great focus, timing and framing, a little room to the left for them to move into would have helped this for me but a strong image.
