Flying Bull
Flying Bull
This bull is Heavens Gate and he is one mean and flying bull as Bradley Harris finds at 6.18 sec. Had not posted a bull ride capture in a while.

An outstanding capture of this wild and wooly bull with all four hooves off the ground! Amazing how powerful these animals are and even more amazing that someone could actually ride atop all that unleashed fast and furious power. I've never seen a rodeo - think it's about time I track one down! Incredible shot, Emile!
