Cariboo Cowgirls

Yeehaw!

I went to the Black Mountain Rodeo on the June 14th weekend and what a blast! Can’t remember when I enjoyed a rodeo more (the burgers were wonderful, too!). Managed to snap off 942 pics – yikes! – most of them keepers, too! It was a super day of shooting – but man oh man, did I come home caked in dirt!

The Opening Ceremonies were really great! The Cariboo Cowgirls, a women’s mounted drill team from Williams Lake, BC, were the entertainment and were every bit as good and as entertaining as the RCMP Musical Ride. Kudos to these ladies who travel miles just to get to their twice-weekly practice sessions, then spend the rodeo season traveling and entertaining. And entertain they do! They are a real crowd-pleaser for sure.

They have much more ambition than I’ll ever have! I can’t even ride a horse …

Hope you enjoy these girls and their “dancing” horses – at full gallop!
