Bareback Bronc Riding Photo Credits

The photos on this page were taken by long-time Carpenter Rodeo Company photographer Steve Vanselous.

As you've probably noticed most of the photos on this page show bronc riders getting bucked off instead of making a ride. This is because, over the years, bronc riders usually purchased the photos from Steve Vanselous that showed themselves making a good ride.

The photos showing the bronc rider in a less flattering position didn't sell as well. When Steve stopped taking rodeo photos in the mid-1980s he sold his remaining photo inventory to Bill Carpenter of Carpenter Rodeo Company, and the majority of the remaining photos were of bronc riders getting bucked off. The photos on this page are from Bill's collection.
