They're often thrown like rag dolls or risk being gored by bucking bulls and broncos. But in those few seconds in the spotlight of the rodeo, they are part of the world again.
Only the prison's best-behaved inmates participate, and they have to pass a physical. Thousands of others make and sell food, arts and crafts.
The rodeo is open to the public this weekend.
