Teen Cowboy Dies At Rodeo Over Memorial Day Weekend

A Memorial Day Weekend full of country fun was abruptly cut short when a teen cowboy fell from his horse at the Cowtown Rodeo. New Jersey State Police listed the death as an accident — no one planned for a 1,250 pound bronco to stomp its 19-year-old rider into unconsciousness. The incident serves as a reminder of the realities of rodeo, which is as dangerous as it is fun to watch.
