Some of the top talent in the country will be descending on Oktibbeha County this weekend. Starting tonight, the Starkville Rotary Club will host the Rotary Classic Rodeo at the Mississippi Horse Park.
According to Horse Park director Bricklee Miller, those choosing to attend this weekend will be treated to a bevy of World Champions and National Rodeo Finalists including, but not limited to the Wright Brothers from Tennessee, who are entered in the saddle bronc, as well as bull riders Jacob O’Mara, Elliot Jacoby and Zeb Lanham and tie-down roping star Stran Smith.
Joining the party will also be Mississippi’s own NFR qualifier Tyler Pearson who will take his turn in the steer wrestling competition.
“The quality of contestants entered at the Horse Park is important to this event,” Miller said. “This level of competition and talent is what sets our professional rodeo apart from others as these contestants are competing to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada. The spectators of this rodeo will get to see the best cowboys and cowgirls in the world right here in Starkville.”
