RodeoChat Takes On Cheyenne Frontier Days!

Good Evening Everyone! Hope you all had an amazing weekend and a great start to the new work week. This past weekend I went down to Cheyenne, WY for the Daddy Of Them All A.K.A Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo! But, this weekend was extremely emotional and very special. 27 years ago from July , 2016 Lane Frost lost his life at Cheyenne. Lane Frost is gone but he will never be forgotten. If you haven't seen this little snippet the Wrangler Network put together of Lane Frost throughout his years.. I recommend y'all to take a minute and watch it! It definitely gave me goosebumps, and I'm not going to lie.. It made me all teary eyed as well. Why did all of the good ones have to go so soon?

We loaded up our car and headed down to Cheyenne, Wy around 3 AM this past Saturday. Checked into our hotel in Casper, WY got all prettied up for the Rodeo and the Florida Georgia Line and Cole Swindell concert afterwards. 

One of my favorite events at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo is the Rookie Saddle Bronc Riding! I had the opportunity to see my friend Kody Rinehart ride in the Rookie Saddle Bronc Riding Saturday for the first time and I recorded his ride for you to see! Check out the video, here -- >> https://www.facebook.com/paigegregory/videos/10206482785044592/ Kody, ended up TIED for 5th in the Rookie Saddle Bronc Riding Average with Ross Griffin. I'd say it's pretty dang good for making his debut at The Daddy Of Them All, right? Kody, is back to the Cody Nite Rodeo in Cody, Wyoming where he has been currently riding at this summer.

The rodeo itself was simply amazing! It was on the edge nail biting action when it came to Championship Sunday. It felt like every rider that came out of the bucking chutes or the timed event end took over the leader board in there events on each out.

It was my first time attending Cheyenne in person, and I must say it's one rodeo that I will never forget! I created memories that will last a life time and the people I met during the event I'm so thankful I had the pleasure of meeting. Not to mention, I had the opportunity to see Florida Georgia Line and Cole Swindell in concert for the first time and It was probably one of the best concerts I have been too in a long time. I walked into the concert not even knowing I'd be interested in Florida Georgia Line but I walked out of the concert as a huge fan! Florida Georgia Line broke another record in Cheyenne with another sold out show and a attendance record of 63,000 +!! I took a few photos during the concert that I would like to share with you all..
