Fort Worth, Texas – A second saddlebronc horse has died in as many weeks at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. The rodeo, which lasts from January 13 through February 4, has been operating since 1896 and is one of the longest running rodeos in America.
The white 9-year-old gelding, Treasure of Patience, headed straight for a far wall when the gate opened. He bucked until he slammed head first into the wall. He dropped to the ground as the bronc rider hung onto the fence. Patience’s legs twitched as he lay, mostly motionless, on the ground.
