Texas girl goes viral for rodeo skills

SAN ANTONIO, TX (KTRK) -- It doesn't matter how many times you fall, it's how many times you get up that makes a champion and one Texas rodeo girl knows that better than anyone.

Kameryn White is going viral for still tying a goat after a hard fall off her horse.

The 9-year-old became a Facebook star when her family shared the video on Jan. 21. The 26-second clip shows Kameryn falling off a horse into a "scorpion" landing then tying up a goat without a second of hesitation.

A 'scorpion' is a term used when someone falls and their legs and feet come up over their body and touch their head, like a scorpion tail. Famous skateboarder Rob Dyrdek popularized the term on his TV show "Ridiculousness."

The video has over 3.1 million views from around the world.

However; some of the reaction was negative from people who have wished harm to the family and accuse them of animal cruelty.

Kameryn did well at the annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.

She placed second in goat touching, eighth in pole-bending and won the breakaway roping competition for her age group along with $448.
