The American (Rodeo)

In Personal Projects by Simon King / March 17, 2014 / 0 Comments

I was privileged to be able to photograph the worlds biggest one day Rodeo at the AT&T Stadium, Arlington Texas (the home of the Dallas Cowboys). This was my first ever Rodeo and one of the most exciting days sport I have ever witnessed. RFD-TV gave me (and my wife) a press pass for this prestigious event and were incredibly hospitable to us the entire day.

The day gave each event winner the opportunity to win $100,000 outright. But if you came into the event as a qualifier or had an exemption and won your event you had the chance to share in a bonus prize fund of $1,000,000. As it proved 21 year old Richmond Champion was the only qualifier to win his event in the Bareback and took home $1,100,000 for his efforts.

Although this was my first Rodeo it will not be my last and I am working on a project that will take me back again to spend more time with the Cowboys and document their way of life.

There are a selection of photographs from the event for sale in my online gallery
