God, Country, Family, Rodeo. That's Cody Wyoming's motto and after staying in Cody and attending the rodeo I can believe it. It's a must do if you're ever visiting this town. It's fun for the whole family. My kids had an absolute blast and even got in on the action.
The rodeo has always fascinated me. It's where man and beast work together or against one another depending on the circumstances.
Women look just as tough as the dudes and there's an intensity watching this live that can't really be matched with other events.
These people risk their lives on a weekly basis to do the thing they love for hardly any money at all.
It has to be a hard life living in the rodeo scene but all the people that were participating genuinely loved it.
The audience sits on the edge of their seat most of the night and it was fun to see the kids get involved.
They had an event where the kids tried to get a flag that was tied to a calve's tail. You might think to yourself poor calf but compared to some of these kids the calf probably had an advantage. I was surprised that in a time where people can be so litigious they'd let something like this happen. The calves and kids were fine and everyone had a good time.
