Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to work with some talented people. Here’s a video produced by a company now called Advantage Pro, whose technicians did an awesome job with this particular spot for the 2006 Guymon (Okla.) Pioneer Days Rodeo. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoy reflecting on it.
Oh, and that young man holding the bronc reign near the end of the sport is Shade Etbauer, the youngest son of two-time world champion Robert Etbauer. The background image was that of Shade’s uncle, Billy, who won the last of his five world titles in 2004. Both the older Etbauers were inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame just a couple weeks ago; Shade Etbauer won the Little Britches Rodeo Association’s saddle bronc riding national title this past weekend.
