16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Breakaway Roper in the arena

I was shooting in a warm-up arena during the Big Timber, MT rodeo and found this young Breakaway Roper enjoying an intimate moment with her teammate while waiting to compete. The sun warm on their faces you can see the horses eyes closing, relaxing as she scratches his mane.
