Back In The Saddle Again

by country ranch writer



Background
This a true story of this bull rider and he is determined to believe he can do anything he sets his mind to.
This is about what can happen to a lot of rodeo riders. Sudden injury is one of the things that can happen when you ride. Becoming Paralyzed! What are you supposed to do with the rest of your life if this is all the life you know. Everyone was aghast he was not up front with his doctor. Its until you figure out what you are going to do this is all you have to hold onto.

Sometimes the doctors are surprised that you are just too darn stubborn to take it lying down and you are going to do everything in your power to do it your way. I am speaking of Jerome Davis. The doctor said he would never ride again. Slung onto his head, a bull shattered his spine and paralyzed him for life. He was determined to prove the doctor wrong, even though he would never ride bulls anymore, no one would keep him from his love of riding.

With the help of a special saddle the champion bull rider is back in the saddle, even though he can't walk and has trouble eating. It's been said that he told his friends the doctor doesn't have a clue yet what he had been up to. Said he commented, "I don't tell Docs everything."
