Over a 2 hour Rodeo, I’ll shoot 2500 images at 15 frames per second to get the exact moment that the rider’s hat hits the dirt (below).

Indeed an excellent shot.

Personally though I am not a rodeo shooter by any stretch (my preference is strongly for show jumping which is very much a different appreciation of the horse and rider) when I do have the opportunity to shoot a rodeo I shoot single frame and rely on timing to get the images that I want. I am not a fan of motor drive for sports.

Good catch..

I have a certain amount of admiration for those that can get a single capture at exactly the right moment in the action. But.... I often wonder how they can be certain that the image that might have been taken a split second, before or after, might not have been the better one. 15 or 20 frames per second kind of eliminates that uncertainty, at least for me.
