• Short Summary

    Ride 'em cowboy - men and women have a go at riding cows at a once a year rodeo event in Devon.

  • Description

    Plymouth, Devon.

    Cattle are rounded up by men on horseback. They are herded into pens then "amateur cowboys" sit on their backs and the cows are let out one by one. The men are thrown off pretty rapidly though. This is a once in a year event. Two girls have a go - she is pretty good. Various shots of the "rodeo" and of the spectators looking amused. It looks pretty dangerous to me.

    The last guy we see manages to get to the end of the course. Looks pretty funny as he is being thrown up and down by the bull.

    Cuts exist - see other record.
