25 for 25: Celebrating WRCA’s Anniversary

I began covering the World Championship Ranch Rodeo in 2008, and it’s always a fun event to photograph, with plenty of action, characters and memorable moments. As the Working Ranch Cowboys Association prepares to host its 25th WCRR in Amarillo, Texas, November 12–15, 2020, I’ve compiled my 25 top photos shot while covering the event.
