    She wasn’t a Sequoyah county woman she lives in Leflore County and her saddle slid off going around the 3rd barrel and he ran back toward the alley and drug her. And as previously stated it was not a rodeo it was a jackpot barrel race. Dang if you are gonna report the news you could at least attempt to get a few things right.

    First off rodeo is like any other sport or game you play. Or every time u wake up in the.morning its a way of life every day you take a chance with your life weather your a office worker or a stay at home mom wwhen u get out of bed your taking a chance with your life. Me and my family have always been rodeo and country people and will rremain that way. Its the luck of the draw and not no one can say when its your time to go only god can . And if any of you truly knew god and have him in your life then all of you would know this and not be argueing on this.

    Given the poor use of English, spelling errors and flawed language, perhaps this is a valuable sport in cleansing the gene pool. Crack a book.

    You obviously have no clue what you are talking about. It doesn’t happen at every rodeo as you stated. It’s actually a rare occurance and this was not a rodeo. It was barrel racing.
