Great Markham Rodeo

We went to a Single Horizons' event this afternoon ~ the Great Markham Rodeo in Markham, just north of Toronto.

There were lots of vendors and we stayed for one of the shows. Surprisingly there was no beer tent. There is another show at 7:00 and then a couple concerts.

I'm not a big fan of rodeos (this is only the second one I've been to) as I hate seeing animals getting hurt. So I'm always cheering for the horses and calves! The events where the cowboy has to jump off his horse and wrestle a calf to the ground bother me. But I'm glad to see the calves jump up afterwards and run to the corral.

Bareback riding

The cowboy got bucked off ... yay!!

Junior calf riding

Calf roping ... not a big fan of this.
One cowboy ropes the calf's horns and then the other ropes it's back legs :(

I hate when the broncos throw me off. That ground is hard and I get all dirty.
