A belt buckle, a saddle, maybe a little prize money - it's enough to tempt some to try riding a wild horse or bull.

On any summer weekend, you'll find cowboys and cowgirls testing their skills on rodeo grounds throughout the West. Most will get off work on Friday and drive for hours just for the chance to compete.

Outdoor Idaho explores this dedication as it goes behind the scenes of a small town rodeo.
