They call the thing rodeo

(Photo by ERIC PLUMMER) Trenton Montero competes in the bareback bronc riding competition Friday night during the Bonner County Rodeo. Montero, who traveled from Nevada to compete in the PRCA pro event, was asked what makes someone attempt what the announcer had just termed the most physical and demanding sport in all of rodeo. “Some people like riding motorcycles, or jumping out of planes,” answered Montero after his stellar ride. “I grew up on a ranch, and there were not enough kids to play football. It was easy to find horses and bulls to get on. I just like the excitement of it.” Montero scored a rock-solid 84 on a thrilling ride that drew strong applause from the crowd at the Bonner County Fairgrounds. The rodeo continues with day two tonight, with gates opening at 6 p.m., grand entry and 6:45 p.m., and first chutes opening at 7 p.m.
