    Cowboys ride their horses in parade around arena in large stadium. (Looks like the LA Olympic Stadium).

    Man rides a bucking steer / cow. Cut away to crowd. He falls off.

    A man rides bucking bronco out into the arena. Several riders follow on. One rider (called Jose by the PA announcer) turns completely around in his saddle as the horse bucks underneath him. Cut away to the crowd.
