I currently use back-button focus with my D200, as well as single point focus (center, it would use top center if mine worked...long story).
While several rodeo events can be captured with relative frequency using a single photograph, there are some events that don't lend themselves to that...roping events being a major one. Not only do you have the rider, but you also introduce the calf or steer. I team roping, there's a second horse/rider.
Cutting horse shows benefit from short 2-4 image bursts. Cowboy mounted shooting is very fast, but the woman I work for says she can do it in one shot. I'm scheduled to do some of this next month, so we will see, but I'm skeptical.
I just want to be as sure as I can that I'm getting a camera capable of what I intend for it.
