We took the video straight to Rodeo officials because it doesn’t match the story they initially told us. We want to warn you, some may find the video hard to watch.
The Rodeo was actually happy to see the video. Until late Thursday evening, they had based their conclusions only on eyewitness accounts. But this video shows them how high the ride was and how fast it was going when the three-year-old fell off.
But Rodeo officials say it changes nothing about who’s at fault.
