I’m in Las Vegas for the first time, covering the National Finals Rodeo. Last night I watched the 8th round, and it was electrifying. Below are a few of my favorite shots from the evening.
Crash Cooper was on hand to open up the performance with a bang.
I sat next to my friend Kyle Partain, a former associate editor for Western Horseman and now managing editor for ProRodeo Sports News. It looks to me like he's seen his share of laser/fireworks shows.
Cory Solomon chases down a calf in the tie-down roping.
Kaycee Feild continues to dominate in the bareback riding, tying for first last night with a 83.5 score. He has won $110,577 so far at the NFR.
Lindsay Sears and Martha tied for third in the barrel racing.
