Rescue Me

The pickup man is the rodeo cowboy’s best friend. In the bareback and bronc-riding events, when the eight-second ride is over, sometimes the horse just keeps on bucking, or heads in the wrong direction away from the exit. The pickup man swoops in, helping transfer the cowboy safely off the runaway horse. It’s a dangerous moment. Pickup men have great timing, experience, and guts.

Saddle bronc-riding action from the 2012 Hamel Rodeo, Corcoran, MN. Thanks for visiting, friends!
