Hello Everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I hope that this NEW week is bringing each and everyone of you NEW opportunities. This past weekend was filled with LOTS of rodeos and bull ridings for me. But, one thing I did different this weekend was go to the movies.. I hardly ever go to the movie theaters anymore, but one movie that just stood out was "American Sniper". For those of you that don't know about the movie "American Sniper" I recommend you do some research on a hero by the name of, Chris Kyle. Chris, was a United States Navy Seal that put his life on the line to fight for this amazing country that we live in today. I don't say this enough, but God Bless those fighting over seas right now to keep us safe. Those men and women fighting for our country deserve SO much for all that they do.

Now let's talks some rodeo AND Bull Riding! As you know.. This past weekend was a HUGE rodeo weekend for rodeo cowboys and cowgirls across the world.
