It's the Fair

Yee Haw, Cowboys!

The Bareback Riding competition of tonight’s rodeo just ended.  For the first time I have ever seen, every rider got a score!  All the guys stayed on their bucking horses for the required 8 seconds and all the scores were over 80 points.  Awesome!

The Barrel Racing is underway right now, with Bull Riding and more hold-tight-and-don’t-fall-off events to come.  One cowgirl just slalomed the barrels in just over 13 seconds.  WOW!

I gotta say, in past years Rodeo night has been something of a yawn but the last few years have been full of speed, action, excitement, and posted scores.  Ride ’em cowboys!

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
