One Last Trip to the Black Hills Stock Show!

Well, the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo is over for one more year, but I was able to make it to Rapid City to spend one more day taking in the sites, the smells, and the crowds!  While there I spent the entire morning visiting with vendors, photographing several of the bulls, took in the second go of slack barrel racing, and of course had to visit the petting zoo!

I had a lot of fun with the barrel racing, taking "nonstandard" barrel racing shots, focusing more on the power and beauty of the horse rather than the standard image showing the front of the horse rounding the barrel.
The stock show may be over, but if you have any upcoming spring rodeos or horse shows that you would like covered, call Jana at 605-641-2335 or email at Jana at Thompson Photography.  Thompson Photography is also available for custom livestock photography and sale for details!
