I’ve briefly heard of extreme cowboy races, but this past weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to document one. I reached out to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Posse to see if they would allow me to photograph their race. I had been missing the photojournalistic adrenaline rush that I get photographing combat and rodeos.
I got to witness a beautiful example of camaraderie as cowboys and cowgirls called out the next obstacles for their competitors. I heard shouts of encouragement and cries of happiness for one another. I saw amazing displays of horsemanship as they attempted new obstacles and worked with their horses to overcome them.
Check out some photos of their hard work and dedication:
