This saddle bronc, a mare, was quite happy to put on a show, including sunfishing - turning her belly skywards, so in fact she twisted her body - before she shucked this cowboy off her back. (Would have used that shot but then would have had an enormous distracting bg element to deal with). I think that between the cowboy crawling away in defeat, and the expression on her face, and the vehemence in her (by now) completely unnecessary buck, says it all.
