Christmas in March

My daughter's Christmas gift to me was tickets
for her and I to go to the Pro Bull riding


and March 12th was the day!  She picked me up and we had dinner and then headed to Westgate where the event was being held.

This was entertainment from start to finish. A fiery opening  with the booming music that draws you into all the action and the worlds top bull riders jockeying for position to come out on top of bulls with an attitude.


 We had a good view of the chutes and of course they had the camera's too. I took this little video...


There was plenty of action but let me tell you one of the best actions they had...



Flint Rasmussen. A professional clown who's job isn't to protect the riders but to entertain the crowd and does he ever....watching him was worth the ticket in itself.......
   He follows the circuit and this is his full time job. I found his background interesting as well.....Flint Rasmussen.
My interest in bull riding goes back to when I was just a young girl who dated a bull rider, they are a breed of their own and it sure isn't for sissy's....

I think this is one of my best Christmas presents ever and one that lasted all night long...............................

Glad you and daughter had such a grand time. A memory gift is the best kind to get. I would say nothing about a rodeo is SISSY. Brought back found memories of the one we saw on a trip to Texas. Peace
