HORSE IN SPORT: RODEO
In this installment, we explore the sport of Rodeo. Rodeo is the sport of the Cowboy, and the Cowboy is the Greatest of all American heroes. This spectacular, all-action introduction to the sport goes deep into the Wild West to show rodeo cowboys in each of the seven arena events:
SADDLE BRONC RIDING
WOMEN's BARREL RACING
Both extremes of man's relationship with the horse are on display: from the roper who requires consistency and precision in his race against the clock, to the bare-back rider who confronts an unfamiliar horse in eight seconds of explosive bucking action.
The film features a round-up of bucking horses on a lonely Montana ranch, describes the history of the sport and gives an insider's view of the cowboy way of life. But most of all, in slow motion in the clear light of the Arizona desert, with the help of some classic country and western music, it shows rodeo action at its most exciting featuring Australian bronc rider Dave Appleton and Bronx bull-rider Bobby del Vecchio.
This video is part of the "Horse in Sport" Series recognizably the finest documentary series ever produced about horses and horse people; the seven equestrian disciplines represented in this acclaimed series each stand alone in their spectacular photography, music and narration. No equestrian library would be complete without this timeless collection.
