Rodeo has taken me to every part of the world, All Hawaii islands, national finals rodeo las Vegas, Nevada, and much more. Hawaii high school rodeo is an association that you are judged on your points of rodeo and your grades in school. You need a 2.0 or better to rodeo and must I say it made me want to have good grades to do something I love. Rodeo makes you learn teamwork, different cultures of others and got me out in this world to learn and accept differences. Rodeo is now giving me a chance to college rodeo and become a part of a new team.
My partner this year was Denton Good, his family and mine have been very good friends for a very long time,our dad’s rodeo together a long time ago. In the first round in ribbon roping we were a 13.3 seconds that put us number one in that performance, but third in the whole go round. I was so excited when we went to awards Friday night, it was my first ever national buckle I had ever won in my life. Then in the second round we were a 12 flat that puts us third in the go again. I was so excited that I had gotten two buckles form nationals in the same year.
This was my best event. I did really good on it I was one of the fifteen people advancing to the next round. The next event was the texas barrels after that it was the arena race then the last event was the cloverleave. On all of the three barrel races I did just bad enough to not be able to go to the next round. About three hours after the first wave was the second round.
As see that there is only ten minutes left for the game to finish I can see everyone’s face and see exhausting in them. I notice one of my teammates Sebastian scoring and the whole team starts celebrating.As five more minutes pass and finally remember hearing the final whistle and I see everyone celebrating as we have won the championship.As we were done celebrating and packing our stuff we went in a room where I could see the big
Source A, “The Sport - the Life- of Rodeo” says, “Just like in basketball, there is a team. My team consists of my horses, my parents and everyone who helps me keep my horses working, including my vet ad my farrier, who shoes the horses,” (Pallesen). In high school rodeo, I always do anything to make my equine athletes feel their best. Our horses travel together so much that they pretty become a team. My horses, parents, and myself are a great team.
Based on the evidence provided from both Epstein and Gladwell, it is clear that Gladwell’s argument that we control most of what happens in our lives is much stronger. In, The Sports Gene, David Epstein claims that genetics can lead to major success, as two high jumpers with over 20 years difference in practice were able to compete at the same competitive level. Epstein first introduces Donald Thomas, the novice high jumper who seems to defy the idea that practice is the best way to achieve. Fast forward roughly eight months, to the World Championships where Thomas will face the best of the best in the world. His main competition, Stefan Holm, had been working at his craft of high jumping for over 20 years at this point, and was now at the same stage as a rookie with less than one year of training

My scores at practice were on the rise, so I was excited to shoot at the tournament at the end of the week. It was the night before the tournament and I was shooting really good compared to what I had been shooting. Moe was at practice that same night to see how I was doing with the new techniques. He said that I should be ready for for the tournament. So we got to the tournament and it was an hour before we had to shoot.
With the assistance of local livestock agent H. C. McMullen, Weadick convinced four local businessmen, Pat Burns, George Lane, A. J. McLean, and A. E. Cross (better known today as The Big Four) to donate $100,000 towards funding the Stampede.

Voyeurs watched hundreds of cowboys from Western Canada, the United States and Mexico compete for $20,000 in prizes. The event generated $120,000 in revenue and was hailed a huge success for
A year ago, I signed a contract with Hillsborough marching band but I never knew what I was signing up for. The place I feel at ease is marching band practice. This is because the people there are nice. I even won an award for being the most improved rookie. Although it is tiresome I have to constantly spend around 3 hours practicing marching and playing my music every Mondays and Tuesday during summer and fall, the adrenaline rush made me more focused and on task.
