I did some steer wrestling but w/out a horse--chute dogging--c/o IGRA gay rodeos. I never even considered it until I got into the country line dance & 2-step night at my local night club. I met these folks & went to a weekend training clinic. I was always terrible at it (see pic in profile!) but it was such a gas realizing I was doing it--starting it!--at the ripe old age of 48. Competed in IGRA rodeos for about 4 years. The whole gay country scene seems so much more sane than the cruising/dance/pose scene. (OK, I DO my share of posing as a cowboy, but it's not really the same, is it???) At the bars, people are DOING something & their personalities are out for all to see & enjoy. At the arenas, people are stretching themselves as HUMANS (many-a-girl were perpetual inspirations, too!). And the >>men<GEORGEOUS!
