When Clay Tryan and his horse backed into the box back in 2000, he was a young man just starting his professional rodeo career.
Suggestions from the Enjoy Bloggers on events and activities to attend this week:
The MontanaFair PRCA Rodeo brings competitors from across the country to Billings to vie for top honors. In a photo from last year's rodeo, cowboy A.J. St. Goddard, of Big Spring, Texas, scores a 77 in the bareback competition.
Buck Lunak, of Cut Bank, scores an 80 in the bareback competition at the MontanaFair PRCA Rodeo at the grandstand August 21, 2010.
Two rodeos into the winter season and Bobby Mote was already on crutches.
