There may be 10 different events at Shawnee’s International Finals Youth Rodeo each summer, but five of those stood out as favorites — and the most photographed — from this year’s splash-filled muddy rodeo.


1. Bullriding: Watching these cowboys try to hold on for 8 seconds makes for some great photos.

2. Bareback riding: With lots of action, cowboys in this event also take some tumbles.

3. Saddebronc riding: Another wild ride event.

4. Goat tying:  With all the rain and mud at the 2015 IFYR, there were many great photos in this event.

5. Steer wrestling: Cowboys jumping off horses onto a running calf is good art any day,  but even more so when it's a muddy rodeo.
