Off to a bang

The Thursday performance got off to a bang, literally, today for Round-Up Princess Lindsee Williams.

Williams, of Helix, Ore., ended up on the ground against the grandstands during the grand entry to kick off today's performance of the Pendleton Round-Up.

Williams was thrown from her horse, but got to her feet and initial reports were that the Round-Up princess didn't suffer any serious injuries.

The Round-Up court kicks off each rodeo performance in Pendleton by riding into the arena at full gallop. It starts off the excitement, but sometimes the excitement is more than expected.


Reigning bareback world champion Will Lowe showed why he is also leading the world standings this season by scoring an 88 today on the horse Booger's Pet.

Lowe's score was the best of the day in the bareback riding.


Dark clouds are hanging over the Round-Up grounds. It looks like rain could be possible before the afternoon is over, as the clouds are stacking up against the Blue Mountains just east of Pendleton.
