Not this Cowboy's First Rodeo
Some argue it's one of the most physically demanding sporting events and it certainly isn't for the faint of heart. One cowboy passed through North Central Florida hoping it will led him to Las Vegas. 22 year old Dustin Smith needed to last eight seconds on a randomly chosen horse if he wanted to score any points in the bareback bronc riding event. The self described cowboy from Georgia was in town Friday competing at the 15th annual williston Pro Rodeo. He wants to eventually compete in Las Vegas.
"It's every cowboy's dream but it's a long road to get there," said Dustin Smith.
The Williston rodeo will also take place on Saturday night. To see more on Dustin's story, watch the video to your right.
