Who am I?

And who am I?

Standing on a rock

staring at the sun

Saying who am I

My, my, my, my, yeah

The world's spinning fast

everybody asks

Which way is it going?

Who am I?

Standing on a rock

Staring at the sun

Saying who am I

My, my, my, my, yeah

I had a dream

What does it mean?

Why do I dream at all?

I'm looking back

Stop, heart attack

Catch me before I fall

Who am I?

And who am I?

Standing on a rock

staring at the sun

Saying who am I

My, my, my, my

My, my, my, my, my yeah

And here's Dakota Rose!

She will now move into

a series of vaults.

There's one and back on board!

Let's give her a hand, folks!

Oh, that's a hard fall, folks!

Let's hope she's okay.

Now how about some energy?

Let's help her up!

My name is Dakota Rose.

You'd think that my being the granddaughter

of rodeo legend Austin Rose...

Would make me a great

trick rider myself.

But so far, that's

clearly not working out.

Yep, times were challenging

for the Sweethearts,

and I wasn't exactly helping.

I lost my foothold. That's all.

I told you to make

that foothold looser.

- Why didn't you listen to me?

- Because you're my sister, not my coach.

Ladies and gentlemen, let's give a

big welcome to the Lone Stars...

Captain Dawn Morton

and Julia Reneau.

There she is, God's gift

to the rodeo world.

Be nice, Miss Madison.

I am being nice.

Broken tactics

Gettin' out the fact sheets

I've done statistics


And you'll miss it

Boom-boom, boom

Don't mind knowing the score

But I can't deal

with this no more

I'm gonna have to

lay down the law

- She never makes a mistake.

- Well, she's pretty good.

You can't watch sport

round my place no more

Y'all see that?

That is how you trick ride.

You obviously haven't heard

of a concept called modesty.

I say if you got it,

you might as well flaunt it.

I say the next time

we ride against each other...

you're going down.

Good luck with that, princess.

You've been eating my dust

since grade school.

I owned you then,

and I own you now.

Forget about her.

- So what's with them?

- It's so stupid.

They used to be best

friends in fourth grade,

and then Dakota booked the

lead in the school play.

She got to play

a princess and Dawn...

played a frog.

Dawn never really got over it.

Well, she would make a good frog.


Come on. You're ready for this.

Are we ready to show

'em what we got, girls?

Put your hands together and welcome

the Sweethearts of the Rodeo!

Right there, wouldn't it be easier for

the girls to do a Triple Wedding Ring?

If they did the Triple, they wouldn't

be able to do the Four Leaf Clover.

Everybody knows

that's the stronger trick.

I doubt everyone

knows that, actually.

What do you know? You're just a

bull rider with 10 cracked ribs.

I got the best of that bull.

Don't you worry about me.

The way I look at it, we owe that bull,

'cause we got some cheap part-time help.

All right, folks, I wanna remind

you to join us in a few months...

for the Buttercup Challenge Finals.

A lot of the young ladies you saw riding

here in today's trial competition...

will be there for the big one.

And as we lead into the second

day of competition tomorrow,

it looks like the Lone Stars

are in first place.

Congratulations, ladies.

And way to go, Stars!

They are not better than us.

Well, these are just the prelims.

We've got two months

before the finals.

Come on. Let's pack it up.

- You need to check Silver's right front shoe.

- I know that.

I'm just looking out for you

'cause you're my little sister.

Maybe it's time to face the fact that
