While Mutton Busting may be the crowd pleaser at Rodeo Austin, I think the roping events are the ones which appeal to me most. Rather than pure machismo, roping a running steer from the back of a galloping horse seems, to me, to take an enormous amount of skill.
Before I offend anyone who is into bronco or bull riding, I’m sure there’s a lot more involved there than merely hanging on for dear life! To a casual observer such as myself, though, the way these cowboys can handle a lasso is pretty darned impressive.
