It took a little coaxing and a lot of help, but Kennedy Matthews takes her turn on the mechanical bull Saturday night at the Crowley’s Ridge Saddle Club’s Charity Rodeo. The mechanical bull was a popular stop during the event that attracted standing-room only crowds thanks to the warm and dry weather. Samantha Colvin gives Kennedy a helping hand during her ride. More pictures from the rodeo can be found on Page 10 of today’s Times-Herald. Photo by Kendall Owens.
