Eric Lassiter | Rodeo~Steps from the Arena

Ennis is a small ranching town in the Madison River Valley in Southwestern Montana. Each year, the evening of July 3 and the afternoon of July 4, it hosts an outsized regional rodeo, with a big Main Street parade and nighttime fireworks mixed in. In 2012 and 2013 I was allowed nearly unfettered access around, in and above the rodeo chutes, corrals and holding pens. Thank you to the Ennis Rodeo Association, the riders and fans. Wonderful. See you in 2014.
