Thursday’s second performance of the West of the Pecos Rodeo will again be chalk full of some of the brightest stars that make their living on the rodeo trail.
Team roping seems to be the largest star-studded lineup, with Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers ready to rope. There are 14 teams set to compete in slack Thursday morning, and only the top teams will rope in the performance. But fans will get the chance to see teams like Brock Hanson and Kory Koontz; Charly Crawford and Ryan Motes; Arky Rogers and Walt Woodard; Dustin Davis and Kinney Harrell; Turtle Powell and Dugan Kelly; and Derrick Begay and Cesar de la Cruz.
Bareback riding features some tremendous match-ups, like three-time world champion Will Lowe trying his tremendous skills against two-time NFR bucking horse Outa Sight, eight-time NFR qualifier Wes Stevenson and Alberta Child and Caine Riddle vs. 2005 Bareback Horse of the Year Real Deal; all those horses are from Carr Pro Rodeo.
Bronc riding brothers Jacobs and Sterling Crawley will get to ride, as will NFR bull riders like Shawn Hogg and Cody Whitney. Bull riding also will feature to PBR cowboys Austin Meier and Skeeter Kingsolver.
There’s plenty of heat happening in Pecos, Texas, and most of it will be happening in Buck Jackson Arena.
