 Shawn Hogg used to be a professional bullrider. For 9 months, he was nr. 1 in the states. That same season, he won the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show, which is one of the biggest rodeos in the world. 6 months ago he retired, and now he's getting used to the life of a regular cowboy. But he can't just abandon rodeo, so he teaches young riders at Odessa College as assistant coach for the rodeo team.

 Shawn getting a massage. His back is still acting up from time to time. Some days he's in considerable pain, but he doesn't like talking about it. "It's all part of being a bullrider. It's not healthy, and it's gonna hurt for the rest of my life".

 All the cattle have been gathered at the end of the pasture, and now they only have to drive for half a mile before they put them in the pins. This is usually the easy part of the job, unless some of the cattle decide to run off. Not this day, though.

 Before going out into the pasture, the cowboys meet at Dewey's Breakfast Shop to have breakfast. This morning, everyone had been a bit early, so they waited outside for the sun to rise, before riding out.

 When the cowboys go out to drive the cattle, they ride from one end of the pasture to the other. By the time they reach the far end, they'll know where all the cows are, and they turn around and drive them all back.

 Katy Kamm at the college rodeo in Brownwood, Texas. His primary event is bulldogging. He and his "chaser" has to catch a bull in high speed, and once they're right next to it, Koty will jump off his horse, and wrestle the "steer" to the ground. The cowboy able to do it in the shortest amount of time, is the winner.

 Cowboys in West Texas dress a certain way. Cowboy hat, long-sleeve button-down shirt, jeans, boots and chaps. Your shirt has to be tucked in your pants. Showing up at a ranch any different, is seen as a sign of disrespect from the old cowboys.
