Sled Dogs & Bull Riders



  • Sled dogs teams at the start of the Iditarod do it. 
  • Race horses, grey hounds and race car drivers do it. 
  • Mules and work horses at horse pull competitions do it. 
  • Athletes do it.
  • Performing musicians do it. 
  • Actors do it before they come on stage. 
  • Speakers do it before presenting. 
  • Surgeons probably do it before surgery. 
  • Attorneys do it before an important trial.
  • Bucking broncos at rodeos do it.
  • Bull riders do it.
Before the gavel pounds, the gun goes off, the curtain goes up or the gate opens, there is a person or creature quivering with excitement. Pent up energy is released, to start what they were created and trained to do. Beginning.......... to finish well.
