Shane Morin, of San Tan Valley is known for being a happy guy behind the chutes, and by the looks of the smile on his face, he also loves a good bareback riding challenge as he struggles to stay on Brown Bomber, a three-time New Mexico Rodeo Association Bareback Bronc of the Year. Brown Bomber won this round on Saturday during the Gold Rush Days rodeo.
