Anyway, one of the items on my list was to ride as a flag girl in the rodeo... You know, this:
OK, except maybe sitting on the horse.
Anyhoo, I got my chance while living in Florida when I got hired by the Dodge Truck Rodeo Team. And I have to say, I loved it! Every week we got dolled up in gaudy, glittery, sequined outfits and galloped around the rodeo arena, carry the US flag or Dodge flag between each rodeo event. Midway through the rodeo we'd come out and perform a wild, galloping drill routine. Seriously, such an awesome job!
And did I mention copious amount of the tight little cowboy butts in tight little jeans. Occupational BONUS!
All this in exchange for just staying on my horse...
oh, and having to wear a cowboy hat.
