Sitting in a little bar in Eureka Springs, the owner said we should attend the Chuck Wagon Races a few towns over to cover for our Travel Website. Neither my wife nor I had been to a Chuck Wagon Race before and didnt know what to expect.
Let me tell you right now, that two days of Races and we're both hooked!! I couldnt take enough pictures as there was non-stop action. Between the Beautiful Cowgirls, the Beautiful Horses, the major carnage when it came to the mulitple crashes and the rough Cowboys, I was in Photography Heaven.
If you ever have a chance to attend one of these events, it'll be worth the days drive. We spent two days having a blast and are already planning on attending a few more. We've looked on the internet and found a bunch of these events in various states, and have realized a new sport that we never even knew existed.
I only posted a few shots, but there are literally hundreds on my website http://everymilesamemory.smugmug.com/ga ... 5952_Jx5vc
I had never took pictures of horses racing, so I wasnt sure which image was the one riders wanted to see, so I posted 90% of them. I figure after a few weeks I'll be able to see which ones arent being viewed and know those arent the ones they wanted to see.
I'd recommend it to anyone who's into photography
