Irene Rodeo, South Dakota

Irene Rodeo | South Dakota

The Rodeo in Irene, South Dakota was not without challenges. When I was there photographing this event a major rain storm moved in and the rodeo was postponed for over an hour. After the storm clouds cleared the rodeo was back on. The arena was muddy, but the cowboys and cowgirls toughed it out in the mud and slop. Most of the photos here were shot before the storm.
