I had the honor of photographing the 21st Annual Kauai Rodeo, for the Saturday events at CJM Stables in Koloa, Hawaii. Hawaiian rodeos are not like the mainland rodeos- sure, they have barrel racing, bronc riding, and team roping. But they also have Poo Wai U, Double Mugging, Calf Scramble, and the Rawhide Race. I had so much fun watching and photographing this rodeo & hope to come back for their 22nd next year.
Some of these photos were also featured on the COWGIRL Magazine blog: Rodeoing in the Aloha State, interviewing the 2022 Miss Rodeo Hawaii, Noel Tancayo, and my friend Casera Silva on the history and culture of the Kauai rodeo.
