This is the event that brought us to Ponoka for the Stampede. Chuckwagon racing involves watch eight thoroughbred horses (four with the wagon and four outriders) fly through the “Half Mile of Hell” — a figure eight in the infield and then around the track.
When it comes to photography, getting a good picture gets tricky due to the speed of the racers and the chaos of of the start as the four teams let loose.
This is the end of my rodeo photos, at least for this year.
