Good shots. I've been shooting rodeo not exclusively since summer. Barrels are my favorite and have given me my best shots since the action is predictable. If you stick with it, suggest shooting from as long angle as possible (its killer on the knees, but gives you better perspectives). Also fast focusing lens is a must!
If you can get inside the arena, even better, but be careful and ready to move. Nothing scarier than a huge horse coming at you and not knowing if the rider will steer it away from you.
