    Thanks, BB and Dave, for the comments.

    Dave, this was not posed. I happened to be behind the corrals, in between shows, when I spotted this. The cowboy never saw me. I waited for the right moment- when he took a drag off the cigarette- and got off one shot.

    Dave, I asked another rider about that, as there were several of them wearing sneakers. I was told that most riders have boots they wear specifically for riding broncos so it is not unusual to see cowboys wearing sneakers before the events begin. I was also told that some riders are now wearing sneakers instead of cowboy boots for riding, but he said that was pretty rare.
     
  7. Well ya, cowboy boots are not the most comfortable to walk in.
