I’m a Cowboy and This is My First Rodeo
There’s more to a horse than one horse, a solitary calf, and a saddle to ride them on. The competition is stiff, but the rewards in excess of a couple of hundred bucks are well worth the effort. It’s not surprising that some cowboys travel nearly 300 days a year. That’s a lot of horse time. You’ll want to be fit and healthy to be in this business. And with luck and a few lucky breaks you can be the next big thing in no time. A quick online search will turn up a host of tips, tricks and strategies for surviving the competition. Keeping a few key items on hand at all times is always a good idea. This is particularly true if you have a child or two in tow. For a starter, look for a reputable babysitter or a couple of trusted friends. Besides, who knows, you might find yourself on the receiving end of a hefty bonus. If you’re lucky enough, you might even get to ride a horse on a real horse in your local rodeo. Some people say it’s all about timing and a few well matched horses. Of course, a ride in the arena isn’t quite like getting a ride in the clouds, albeit it’s not as good as getting a horse in the first place.
