Wild Ride, No Paycheck

Twin Falls cowboy Joe Skinner rides a buckin’ bronco out of the gate at the annual Days of the Old West Rodeo in Hailey Saturday night. Saddle-bronc riding is known as the classic rodeo event, having evolved from the need for Western cowboys to break horses in order to work cattle. The competition is judged on style, marking the horse with spurs, time and fluidity of riding skills in conjunction with the horse’s moves. Skinner did not mark the horse above the shoulders on the horse’s first jump out of the gate, resulting in disqualification and, subsequently, no paycheck. Photo by Willy Cook
