Six Months of Rural Thursday

Six months?  It's really been half a year of Rural Thursday already?  2012 is slip-slidin' away, for certain. I should know that, anyway, because our local rodeo is over---that's a kind of halfway mark for summer here, too.  From my many rodeo images of three performances and two parades,  I've chosen a photo of a barrel racer in the all-woman rodeo event---and have edited it with a little HDR in Topaz.  Thanks, Nancy, for this great six months of Rural Thursday.   {I'm also linking up with Madge's Weekly Top Shot.}

i always wonder riders that do this ... how do they stay on the horse? makes me nervous. such a great shot. but if they stay like this for too long they will definitely fall off for sure. (:
