From the moment Kelly rides into the arena on horseback to the minute he bids you farewell at the end of the performance, you’re going to be informed about the Barnes PRCA Rodeo bucking horses and bulls along with the PRCA cowboys and cowgirls competing.
Whether or not this is your first rodeo, Kelly will help explain what’s going on in the arena as well as the ups and downs of each and every contestant. Kelly’s job is to keep you informed and entertained throughout the performance with his ability to interact with you, the contestants, and the rodeo clown.
