  • Description

    In brilliant sunshine
    Jan 28, the 21st annual rodeo at Palm Springs, California, got away in grand
    style. Opening, as usual, with a mammoth parade of famous celebrities and
    competitors.

    Leading the parade was this year's 'Grand Marshal', Jack Kelly, star of the
    television cowboy show "Maverick". Then came the 'Rodeo Queen' and the 1025
    competitors on horseback.

    Spectators at this year's show were not at all disappointed. Thrills and spills
    abounded. Bronc riders were bucked, calves were roped, bulls were dogged, and
    hump-backed Brahma bulls were clung to, as competitors took their lives in their
    hands to compete for the many prizes.

    Sponsored by the Palm Springs Mounted Police, the rodeo is held to raise funds
    to be used for purchasing additional rescue equipment, which is used in pursuit
    of the organisation's volunteer work.
