bronc riders

This is the Pennsylvania High SchoolRodeo Associations’s roughstock riders. All of these kids are aged 12-17 and they do this before every rodeo. Nobody tells them to or tells them that they should. They all get together, take a knee and pray for a clean ride, pray for safety of the stock and their friends. This is what makes rodeo special. We respect the cowboys and cowgirls who aren’t afraid to openly practice their faith.

Vera Mcginnis, bronc rider, was the first woman in rodeo to wear pants like the men. Instead of having the ‘masculine’ zipper in the front, she designed the zipper to be on the side for a more 'feminine’ look.
