The Rodeo Clown

I’m the unsung hero standing
Out here on the floor.
My job it is important and quite a
Dangerous chore.
My adrenaline starts kicking when I
Hear the crowd roar.
I’m the rodeo clown and I perform a
Side show on the floor.

Eight seconds are a lifetime when your
Riding on a bull.
No matter which bull you draw it’s an
Unpredictable duel.
As I watch behind this barrel I wonder
Who’s the bigger fool.
I’m the rodeo clown and I protect the
Rider from the bull.

Bareback Riding

JC Trujillo – “Winning is 80% mental!”

“If you want to be world-class you must raise the bar to raise your game.”

It’s easy to say “I’m good enough,” but there is a big difference between “wondering vs knowing” you are good enough. If you want to ride with the stars you have to adopt their life style.

Attitude: A respectable humble champion is a jewel in the sport of rodeo. He lets his riding represent his character and do the talking.

Obnoxious winners lose respect and friends faster than a rock can drop to the ground. In the end it’s the friends you have that count anyway.
