Tricks of the Trade

Someone once said, “The world is best viewed through the ears of a horse.” That may very well be true, but from the perspective of the sibling trick riding team of Claira (13), Wyatt (12), and Allie (10) Morris, the second best view comes from hanging upside down off the side of a horse running around a rodeo arena. … There is not a lot of mainstream attention paid to the sport of trick riding, but because of the glitz, high-adrenaline stunts, and, of course, danger to the rodeo crowd, it is a fan favorite.

We were just four broke twenty-somethings foolishly wasting the last dimes of our paychecks, combining our pocket change for the cheapest hotel room we could find, all in the name of leaving town for a few days and wandering around a big city together. It was one of those trips where you want to leave assured that spontaneity can, in fact, be fun. Out of every random activity that weekend, the most fun thing we did was ride around downtown Dallas on Bird scooters for three hours.
