A big crowd showed up for night number two of the Angelina Benefit Rodeo at the George H. Henderson Jr. Expo Center in Lufkin. Once again, the audience was entertained by the rides, the roping, and, of course, the mutton bustin'.

Thursday night, it was a 7-year-old cowgirl from Huntington who rode away with the championship trophy.  Madison Bryan rode 'Q-Tip' for 94 points.  Despite slipping to the right shortly after coming out the gate, Bryan would not let go and rode the sheep deep into the arena.  8-year-old Reece Modisette, also from Huntington, had a great ride as well as he rode 'Ewe Tube' for 92 points.  Six-year-old Creed Sikes from Lufkin had the best form of the night as he rode 'A Sheep at the Wheel' for a total of 89 points.

Photos of all the riders are located below along with a video of the rides from Thursday night is below.  My apologies for missing the first ride from Jase Berry.
