KILE show and National High School Rodeo Association – Harrisburg Pennsylvania

So we attended the KILE show at the Harrisburg Farm Complex this weekend.  I was absolutely amazed.  You typically don’t think when you live in Maryland with Baltimore so close, that not too far away in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, this stuff exists ;)   We were able to see the National High School Rodeo Association have a rodeo, right where my daughter and I had just competed in Western Gaming….

This is how the show started:

Then there was the roping and steer wrestling….

So did you take notice the age of the kid you just saw?

The National High School Rodeo Association was a big part of this show. Erynn and I were waiting for the bull riding…. and we were not disappointed. These boys were ages 12 to 15 – riding bulls! If you are on my personal facebook page, you already know that both my daughter and I have attempted the mechanical bull in the past month…. we both said “no thank you” on the real thing….

Photographers: The following was shot with the Nikon D3s with 16,000 ISO….
